Let's note, the expanded Tumangan Initiative (RTI) - the program of the United Nations on the help to the countries of Northeast Asia. Initially, the program was adopted at 1992-1996 years, later extended to 2015.
The main goal of RTI is to increase the attractiveness of the mainland of Northeast Asia for international investment, trade and business. Its main element is the development of transport infrastructure and expansion of trade.
So, in the process of implementing the program, a number of specific infrastructure projects were implemented, opening the optimal routes through the ports and railways of the Russian Far East. Among them is the international passenger route from Sokcho (Korea) to Hunchun (China) through the Russian port of Zarubino, a cargo route from Akita (Japan) to Hunchun via the Russian port of Posiet.
