Far Eastern economic region
Far Eastern economic region (Russian: Дальневосто́чный экономи́ческий райо́н; tr.: Dalnevostochny ekonomichesky rayon) is one of twelve economic regions of Russia, and effectively encompasses the same area as the Far Eastern Federal District.
This region accounted for 4 per cent of the national GRP in 2008. Bordering on the Pacific Ocean, the region has Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Khabarovsk, Yakutsk, and Vladivostok as its chief cities. Machinery is produced, and lumbering, fishing, hunting, and fur trapping are important. The Trans-Siberian Railroad follows the Amur and Ussuri Rivers and terminates at the port of Vladivostok.
