Russia wants to better integrate itself into the Asia-Pacific region, Russian Ambassador to China Sergei Razov said shortly before President Hu Jintao left Beijing for Vladivostok on Thursday.

Hu will address the 20th informal economic leaders' meeting and the CEO summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation that will run from Thursday to Sunday in Vladivostok, the largest city on the Russian Pacific coast.

Hu is expected to touch on topics including trade and investment liberalization, regional economic integration, food security and reliable supply and to make proposals on development of infrastructure as regional economies are striving to stabilize growth and promote recovery.

On the sidelines of the meeting Hu will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin and leaders of other APEC economies.

It is the first time Russia has hosted the meeting. The choice of the summit venue "demonstrates the importance paid by the Russian government to the development and modernization of the Russian Far East", Razov told China Daily.
