Russia's Far East And Canada Boast Broad Scope For Business Cooperation

Russia's Far East and Canada have a broad scope for business cooperation in forest, fishing, mining, food, sea navigation, and sawmill industries, said Canada's ambassador to Russia Rodney Irwin. On Monday the ambassador will participate in a gala ceremony, opening Canada's Honorary Consulate in Vladivostok. According to the press centre of the Russian Pacific Coast region, the scope of the honorary consul's activities will include assistance to Canadians working in the Far Eastern Federal District. On May 9-10 the ambassador is to visit Khabarovsk to attend the opening ceremony of the first Canadian house on display as part of the project '10,000 Canadian Houses in Russia'. The project is being supported by the Canadian and Russian governments and targets to construct affordable energy saving houses in eastern and northern parts of Russia. As regards the Far East, the project is most successfully implemented in Khabarovsk by virtue of the active support from the local administration.
