The Far East of Russia might become a very special link between the country  and the Asia-Pacific region, said Prime Minister of Thailand Prayut Chan-o-Cha during a video address at the Sixth Eastern Forum of Economics.

A delegation of the kingdom’s officials, headed by Thailand’s Ambassador to Russia crossed seven time zones on their way from Moscow to Vladivostok to take part at the annual international economic event. 

The Thai Prime Minister also said at the forum that the country intends to enter a free trade zone agreement with the Eastern Economic Corridor, uniting Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

The Kingdom’s officials would aim to sign several deals of trade information exchange and investment support with businesses based in Vladivostok and state enterprises in the Far East of Russia.
