"The forum has become a leading international platform where global issues of the world economy, integration processes in the Asia-Pacific region, and the development of new industries and technologies are discussed. However, today the EEF is one of the instruments for the development of the Russian Far East. Discussions contribute to the economic, technological and social development of the region, as well as improving the quality of life in the Far East," said Anton Kobyakov, Executive Secretary of the Organizing Committee for the Preparation and Holding of the Eastern Economic Forum, Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation.
The Russian-Chinese media forum, the high-level Intergovernmental Russian-Singapore Commission, and the conference "The Common Economic Space from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean" will be held on the sidelines of the EEF-2019. Presentations of the investment potential of the Far East regions and the opening ceremony of new enterprises of the Far East will also take place.
"Over the years, the forum has become a recognized international platform for discussing multilateral cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region," said Anton Kobyakov. - This confirms the participation in EEF-2018 of representative delegations led by top officials of states. The unification of leading politicians, businessmen, scientists and experts from almost all Asia-Pacific countries on one platform creates a unique basis for international cooperation."
According to the results of the IV Eastern Economic Forum, held in Vladivostok on September 11"13, 2018, 220 agreements were signed for a total of 3.108 trillion rubles (those whose sum is not a trade secret).
The forum was attended by 6002 delegates and 1357 media representatives from 60 foreign countries. The largest delegations (officials and business representatives) were from countries such as China (1,096 people), Japan (570 people), the Republic of Korea (335 people), as well as Mongolia, the United States and Great Britain. North Korea was represented by 12 people.
Among high-ranking foreign politicians, the forum was visited by Chinese President Xi Jinping, Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea Lee Nak Yong, and the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
The forum was attended by more than 340 heads of foreign companies. For the first time, the heads of the two largest oil companies in China, occupying the 3rd and 4th places in the international ranking of Fortune Global 500 companies, respectively, attended the EEF site: the chairman of SINOPEC (China Petroleumand Chemical Corporation), Mr. Dai Houliang, as well as the president of China National Petroleum Corporation Mr. Wang Yilin.
But the most important thing is not even these official figures. People in the West and in the USA should pay attention, first of all, to this:
Speaking at the EEF in 2018, Xi Jinping strongly emphasized his interest in cooperation with Russia. Relations with Russia, according to Xi Jinping, are in the best of times.
Xi Jinping instructed the government to coordinate gas supplies from Russia through the Western Corridor. As soon as possible!
It is about 30 billion cubic meters of gas per year. These are very large volumes. And this is not counting the "Power of Siberia", through which another 38 billion cubic meters a year will go from December 2019. Joint military exercises and Xi Jinping"s position to build up trade, economic and political cooperation are evident.
And all this happens in the context of the West"s confrontation with Russia and China, the trade war between the United States and China, the sanctions war between the United States and Russia, hostile policies and hostile statements by the American establishment against both China and Russia.
Once in the West they will come to their senses, but it will be too late - the alliance between Russia and China will finally establish itself.
