In order to make Vladivostok a centre of international trade in the Asian Pacific region It is necessary to remove bureaucratic barriers, said coordinator of small and medium business public organization “Supporting Russia” Oleg Khramov.

In the report “Relevant Problems in International Trade Relations with the Asian Pacific Countries” Mr. Khramov discussed problems that are relevant nowadays in Russian economy and suggested constructive decisions.
One of the problems is, so called, “brain drain” at the Russian Far East. It happens because of of low local market and custom capacity and lack of investmen. Mr. Khramov supposes that this problem must be curbed on the federal level.
