At the event, delegates were briefed by ten speakers on their assessments of the current situation. They also discussed approaches to boost economic ties between Russia and ASEAN.

Speakers to the workshop concurred that ASEAN is a region with a high economic growth rate.

However, the bilateral trade turnover between Russia and ASEAN remains low, so it is necessary to solve the issue, they said, adding that the Russian Federation has many advantages, including its good relations with ASEAN, especially with Vietnam.
