President of Russia Vladimir Putin: I would like to congratulate the investors on making the right choice of place to invest their effort and money, the specialists, administrative workers, administrative teams of all businesses that have just reported about their readiness to start work, and certainly the workers, engineers and all those who put their work and talent into the implementation of these projects.
These are just four projects, but thousands of similar projects, both larger and smaller in scale, have come into being here in recent years.
We will certainly continue to support all your efforts and the efforts of your colleagues to develop the Russian Far East. There is no doubt that this will benefit the cause to which you have devoted yourselves, the cause of developing the Russian Far East and our entire vast country.
Thank you very much and all the best. Get started!
