Sanctions against Russia complicate cooperation, but Japanese companies treat this fact with understanding and patience, said Executive Director of JOGMEC, Tetsuhiro Hosono at the session of the Eastern economic forum.

«There are difficulties, the wind is not always blowing in our direction, there are problems and issues — for example, sanctions. Of course, Japanese companies realize that if we want to create a lasting partnership, you have to be patient, and we are confident that we can overcome all difficulties and consistently develop and maintain our relations with Russia. If there is the will there is a way», — said the representative of JOGMEC.

According to Hosono, JOGMEC believes in good prospects for Russian LNG projects in the Arctic. «We support the cooperation of Japan and Russia in the field of resources and other issues, including oil and gas, and hope that the delivery in the Asia Pacific region will continue,» he said.

«Japanese companies have the necessary knowledge and experience in the field of LNG. Japan is using LNG for about half a century, and we have accumulated extensive experience and knowledge in the field of construction and maintenance of LNG terminals and are ready to share them. We hope that the market will grow fast enough,» he concluded.

Fourth Eastern economic forum will be held at the site of the far Eastern Federal University campus on the Russian island on September 11-13. MIA «Russia today» is the General information partner of the WEF.
