VLADIVOSTOK. October 12. VOSTOK-MEDIA – Vice Governor of Primorsky Krai Igor Uleisky has met with the President of the Alaska Senate Gary Stevens to explore potential areas of cooperation between Primorye and Alaska.
Igor Uleisky told the Alaskan senator about the social and economic growth of Primorye and the major projects presently underway, including the ongoing construction of the APEC forum facilities, a spokesman for Primorye government said.
