Before the summit were build symbolic objects: bridges, new campus FEFU, roads, new airport, opera and ballet theater, started construction of hotels, oceanarium and other objects.
In the days of the summit, which was held in September 2012, a huge APEC logo was depicted in the central square of the city.
Pavilion of e-government was also installed
It has been a number of other events.
Summit was closed with fireworks. I remember well the day: Vladivostok showed his character – suddenly a heavy downpour began straight during the fireworks .
But the people stood under umbrellas, and some just in the rain. The preparations for the summit was not ideal, but it breathed new life into the city.
We simply say to old life: Cheers!
