- Story Text:Russian President Vladimir Putin met with foreign businessmen on Wednesday (September 6) on the sidelines of the third Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.
Putin was courting Chinese, Korean and Japanese investors, hoping to convince them to invest in Russia's Far East.
After Moscow's relations with the West ebbed following the Ukraine crisis, Russia has turned east, seeking economic, political and military cooperation.
Russia's Far East, which covers the extreme part of Russia between Lake Baikal in Eastern Siberia and the Pacific Ocean, has an abundance of natural resources, including forestry and fish stocks.
