Vyacheslav Shport met with the Governor of Heilongjiang Province Lu Hao
On September 24, a meeting of Governor Vyacheslav Shport and Governor of Heilongjiang Province Lu Hao took place in the Government of the Khabarovsk Territory. This meeting was a continuation of the dialogue that took place in July of this year during the First Russian-Chinese EXPO in Harbin. Then Vyacheslav Shport invited his colleague from the PRC to visit the Khabarovsk Territory, the governor’s press service reports.
Vyacheslav Shport, opening the meeting, noted that in 2013, the volume of regional trade with China exceeded 1 billion dollars. Of this amount, about half is in Heilongjiang Province, which is the leading trading partner of the province in China. The PRC has been the leader in terms of the number of foreign-invested enterprises in the region for more than 20 years. Today, there are more than 300 companies with Chinese capital in the region, which is almost half of the total number of firms with foreign investments.
Governor Lu Hao during the meeting spoke in favor of expanding cooperation with the province in all areas. He drew attention to a certain lack of information about the potential of Chinese and Russian enterprises. Therefore, the head of the province proposed to carry out more business missions in Khabarovsk and Harbin. Also, the heads of the two territories spoke in favor of simplifying the procedures for working with investors in the regional and provincial authorities.
The meeting also discussed the development prospects of Bolshoy Ussuriysky Island, the construction of infrastructure facilities and the opening of the border crossing point. A significant part of the issues in this area is within the competence of the federal center and requires additional approvals.
After the meeting, Vyacheslav Shport and Lu Hao welcomed the participants of the Russian-Chinese business mission. Dozens of companies from the Khabarovsk Territory and Heilongjiang Province have become its participants. This is mainly businessmen who reached an agreement during the First Russian-China Expo in Harbin. Today in Khabarovsk, entrepreneurs continued to discuss issues of mutually beneficial cooperation.
