Between Primorsky Krai and Niigata Prefecture (Japan), a direct ferry service may appear

On July 18, a meeting was held between representatives of the Primorsky Krai Administration and colleagues from the Niigata prefecture in Japan. The meeting discussed the development of transport communication, cooperation in the field of transport, tourism, education and agriculture.
According to Aleksey Kolmogorov, Deputy Director of the Department of International Cooperation and Tourism Development of Primorsky Krai, “Niigata Prefecture is a long-time partner of Primorsky Krai. An agreement on friendship and cooperation has been concluded between our regions ”.
As the adviser on the general policy of the department of governor policy of the Niigata Prefecture Office Konchi Casatori noted, the Japanese authorities are interested in developing relations with Primorye regarding the import of Russian liquefied natural gas, as well as opening a direct ferry and air service to Primorye.
Mr. Conchi Cas
Atori also noted that Niigata has no regular flights to Primorsky Krai today. The number of charter flights from Vladivostok to the prefecture is constantly growing. In 2013 alone, the number of flights increased 4 times.
“We are also interested in organizing a ferry service from Nigata to Zarubino, but we propose to include the port of Vladivostok in this line. This will create a stable passenger and cargo traffic, ”said Konchi Kasatori.
In the opinion of Denis Maksimov, head of the department of sea, rail and aviation transport of the Department of Industry and Transport of Primorsky Krai, this ferry line is a good prospect.
“We also support the inclusion of Vladivostok as one of the entry points. We are ready to work together with our Japanese colleagues to increase cargo traffic, ”said Denis Maksimov.
