Editorial Reviews

Produced by the Institute of Economic Research, Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, with the sponsorship of the Sasakawa Peace Foundation of Japan, this volume assembles social and economic statistical data on the Russian Far East, to fill the information gap that now confronts both foreign and Russian investors and entrepreneurs, with a view to assisting in resolving the question of whether to embark on a serious, future-oriented study and assessment of investment projects in the region. The volume is divided into four parts: natural resources and population; economic development; economic reform and the system of economic regulation; and appendixes (statistical overview/organizations active in foreign trade and investment/basic laws, decrees, and normative acts regulating international trade/maps).
