(Photo: Getty Images) Chinese investors are interested in building deep water harbor in Arkhangelsk Oblast, according to Deputy Governor of the region. It is believed that a new deep water harbor is the natural ending point of the infrastructure development around the area.

Alsufyev and Dmitry Deart, who is Head of the Department for Transport, have just returned from China, where they took part in the third meeting in the joint Russian-Chinese working group on the Belkomur project.

They presented the deep-water harbor project to Chinese investors, who showed "principal interest" in developing the port of Arkhangelsk, the regional administration's web site reads.

The planned deep-water port in Arkhangelsk, which is included in Russia's transport strategy for the period to 2030, will have an annual capacity of 30 million tons.
