VLADIVOSTOK, Russia, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived in Russia's Far Eastern city of Vladivostok Thursday for the annual economic leaders' meeting of the 21-member Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum slated for Saturday and Sunday.

At the meeting, President Hu and other leaders of APEC members will discuss trade and investment liberalization, regional economic integration, food security and establishment of reliable supply chains, as well as cooperation in fostering innovative growth.

As the world economic and financial situation remains gloomy, with lower growth in major economies, serious debt crisis in euro-zone, high unemployment in many advanced economies, APEC leaders will work out measures to ensure stable growth in the region.

In an address published by the APEC website on Aug. 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia's chairmanship comes under the motto "Integrate to Grow, Innovate to Prosper."

"Hand in hand with our APEC partners, we are promoting trade and investment liberalization, closer integration, food security, cooperation in the field of prevention and mitigation of natural disasters" and diversification and improvement of transportation and logistics chains.

"I am confident that the summit will contribute to broadening cooperation in the Asia-Pacific and give a new impetus to sustainable development worldwide," he said.

Chinese officials said that at the meeting, Hu will present China's views on how to promote the world and regional economic growth, and elaborate China's stance on the topics of this year's meeting.

Hu is scheduled to deliver a key-note speech at the APEC CEO summit.
