Dear colleagues,

This fall, presidents and prime ministers from APEC economies enhanced their relationships in the conference halls of Far Eastern Federal University's innovative Russky Island campus. Multi-lateral economic and political partnerships flourished in this stimulating academic environment.

In June 2013, I will welcome APRU university leaders to these same facilities, where initiatives to strengthen our collaborations will thrive.  When we meet for the Annual Presidents Meeting, we will have the opportunity to develop possibilities for cross-border research, education and innovation partnerships. We will strengthen our networking capabilities to the benefit of faculty, students and administration. And we will increase APRU's ability to serve as a key partner in inter-governmental organizations.

Our host city of Vladivostok offers a vibrant environment for international cooperation with the dynamically developing countries of the Asia-Pacific region, and provides a modern infrastructure that will assist all APRU member universities reach their strategic potential.

I greatly look forward to welcoming APRU's leaders to FEFU in June.
