German Transport Minister Praises Siemens-Sinara JV

Germany’s Federal Minister of Transport, Building and Urban Development Peter Ramsauer spoke very approvingly of Sverdlovsk Region and Germany’s collaboration, especially of the partnership that exists between Siemens and Sinara Transport Machines: the two companies are working on Lastochka electric trains; the Minister also praised the level of Yekaterinburg’s development, Sinara Group’s PR Department reports.

Peter Ramsauer and Sverdlovsk Region Minister for International and Foreign Economic Relations Alexander Kharlov met at Koltsovo Airport the day before when Germany’s official group of delegates made a transit stop in Yekaterinburg on the way from Japan to their home country.

Dr. Ramsauer first came to Yekaterinburg in the summer of 2010 at the time of Russian-German Interstate Summits. In the course of his talk with Alexander Kharlov, the official gave very flattering estimates on the city’s infrastructure and the organization of events and said that staying in the Mid-Urals’ capital was comparable with staying in Moscow.
