Peskov Describes China-Russian Fora Building Strong Economic Ties

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, speaking on President Vladimir Putin’s visit to China, said that he would be attending the opening of the 8th Russia-China Expo in the city of Harbin in the northern province of Heilongjiang, as well as the 4th Russia-China Forum on Interregional Cooperation.

Peskov called the expo, which goes from May 16-21, “a substantive dialogue,” adding that a large number of Russian regions will be represented and describing it as vital for the development of Russia’s Far East and China’s border provinces. “It’s one of the most important elements of our trade and economic cooperation, which is very multifaceted,” he stated.

The gathering is expected to attract over 5,000 professional buyers from more than 120 delegations representing 44 countries and regions.
