Russia ready to develop cargo transit along Asia-Europe route
"The key objective of these efforts is to make the transit of goods along the Asia-Europe route as fast as possible, economically viable and create a powerful transportation hub in Russia’s Far East, which will help the needs of the entire Russia-Pacific region," he said.
Medvedev noted that the trade turnover between Russia and the ASEAN economic community so far does not exceed $15 bln per year.
"The potential can be much higher, substantially higher, and, potentially, dozens of times (higher)," he stressed. ■
