Khabarovsk territory authorities propose to South Korea to build a coal terminal in Vanino

The development of regional port infrastructure together with South Korean investors is considered the most promising form of cooperation. 

The Khabarovsk Territory delegation presented several investment projects in Seoul. "We see our future with projects in the sectors of agriculture, medicine, as well as port infrastructure and a number of other areas," said Yury Chaika, Deputy Prime Minister for Investment and Priority Projects.

He added that the region already has experience cooperating with South Korean partners in the construction and processing industries.

Among the projects presented is the creation of a specialised terminal for coal transhipment at Vanino. In addition to Vanino Bulk Terminal and Daltransugol, Sakhatrans intends to work with coal and is engaged in the construction of a terminal.

The Vanino site became in high demand as exports of Russian coal to the Asia-Pacific region increased. If in 2008 Vanino saw rail deliveries of 1.1 million tonnes of solid fuel, the figure had grown to more than 22 million tonnes 8 years later.
