The volume of German investments in the Primorye economy has a fairly large share - 35 percent. Mostly German companies invest in financial leasing in Primorye. The German company Siemens and others are traditionally successful in the region.

Vasily Usoltsev also noted close cultural and educational ties between Primorye and Germany. Thus, the Days of German Culture are held annually in the region, and the Far Eastern Federal University has connections with the largest universities of the Federal Republic of Germany.

“I see a great potential for our cooperation in the territories of advanced development that are being created today in the Far East and in Primorye, in particular,” the First Vice Governor emphasized.

Rüdiger von Fritsch noted that his visit to Primorye was called upon, among other things, to emphasize the importance of relations with Primorye for Germany.

The parties also discussed regional projects in Primorye, in the energy sector - the transfer of regional boiler houses from expensive fuel oil and diesel to cheaper coal and gas. The interest of the German guests was also aroused by the development of energy in the northern territories of Primorye.
