We need large anchor projects that Russia would implement and show off in this region, which would also be interesting for international scientific and technical cooperation — Alexander Sergeev, President, Russian Academy of Sciences.
The development of the United Eurasia project deserves special attention as a priority one. <...> We consider developing railways along with other transport corridors in a single network. Basically, <...> this would be the Trans-Eurasian Development Belt, the Integrated Eurasian Transport System. This makes it possible to create a high-speed railway complex on the basis of spatial, transport and logistics corridors between Europe and Asia. And it will be complemented with energy and information and communication systems. Conditions are being created for a more comprehensive and advanced development of Siberia, the Far East and the Arctic. One of the key projects of this large Eurasia project is the creation of a high-speed cargo and passenger bridge — Sergey Kobzev, Deputy Chief Executive Officer - Chief Engineer, Russian Railways.
The countries of the Asia Pacific region lie within the limits of the most complex, most dynamic and most dangerous geological structure that exists on Earth. <...> It has 80% of eruption sources and 80% of earthquakes. <...> I propose to include a project in the minutes of today's meeting. It should be called 'Countries of the Asia Pacific (Ring of Fire), the mechanism evolution of natural processes, catastrophe forecasts, and global security' — Aleksey Ozerov, Director, Institute of Volcano Studies and Seismology, Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences .
Yesterday, Transmashholding, Rosatom and Sakhalin Region signed an agreement on developing nuclear energy on Sakhalin. Hydrogen energy is very interesting. You are probably aware that Japan <…> has been dreaming about using hydrogen engines in transport among other areas. <…> The head of Sakhalin Region has contacted Rosatom himself, because he understands the importance of these processes. Rosatom is not only about nuclear energy – it also deals with alternative energy as well. Development of hydrogen energy on Sakhalin stirs interest in Japan. Here is a question to discuss, if it happens here, how could we transport hydrogen to Japan? — Alexander Sergeev, President, Russian Academy of Sciences.
