Khabarovsk and Niigatu will be joined by the “Flight of Friendship”

Khabarovsk Mayor Alexander Sokolov met with a delegation from Japan. It included representatives of the government of Niigata prefecture, the municipality of Niigata - the sister city of Khabarovsk, as well as scientists from the Research Institute of Economics of Northeast Asia (ERINA) and businessmen of the Land of the Rising Sun.

According to the press service of the Khabarovsk administration, the sides discussed prospects for economic cooperation and development of relations in the tourism sector. A number of factors interfere with the full-fledged cooperation between cities, including the lack of regular flight connections between cities, difficulty in obtaining a visa. These problems are partially solved. In particular, in the summer will operate a charter flight between cities.

“Once upon a time, large delegations from other countries came to us, the so-called“ Trains of Friendship ”. These were groups of 300-400 people, and we showed them Khabarovsk, took them along the Amur, to nature. For many people in Japan, these were exotic trips. Let's revive the tradition! Let it not be in such a volume, let it be not the "Train of Friendship", but let us call it, say, the "Flight of Friendship". Already two charters will be filled, ”suggested Alexander Sokolov.
