The Asia-Pacific region is one of the most dynamic developing regions in the world today. It accounts for over 50 percent of global GDP. For Russia, which is directly connected to the region geographically, it is natural and beneficial to actively increase cooperation with the countries in the region. Moreover, this is of mutual benefit. It affects almost all areas of cooperation, from politics and economics, to scientific, technical and humanitarian cooperation. Recently the visit to Manila and Jakarta by a delegation of Russian senators, led by the Chairman of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, proved convincingly that we have something to offer each other, and that there is something to aspire to. Opportunities exist to further enhance multilateral and mutually beneficial dialogue.
