Medvedev eyes South Korean investment in Russia
Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday called on South Korean businesses to invest in Russia.
Medvedev, who is currently on an official two-day visit to South Korea, will hold bilateral talks with his South Korean counterpart Lee Myung-bak to discuss energy, space, shipbuilding, fishing and military cooperation.
"Russia is interested in attracting Korean investors," Medvedev said. "They not only invest in jobs, but also bring modern technology and introduce modern industrial standards."
Medvedev said Russia and Korea should diversify trade cooperation since the current trade structure is vulnerable to market instabilities.
The Russian leader invited Korean businessmen to the St. Petersburg International business forum in June 2011.
More than twenty documents, including a roadmap on Russian gas supplies to South Korea, are expected to be signed during the talks, the second meeting between Medvedev and Lee in the past two months.
