A trade delegation from Britain is going to arrive in Yekaterinburg in June.

'I have already asked those in charge to facilitate a number of meetings with Sverdlovsk Government officials,' Kuivashev said.

The Governor invited the Consul and the representatives of the British business community to take part in the international industrial exhibition Innoprom in Yekaterinburg; the event proved highly productive for the development of international cooperation.

'Even though in terms of GDP, the British industrial sector is not extremely large, we do have strong industries such the aerospace one and the carmaking one. I believe we can complement one another splendidly precisely in the industrial sector,' Neil Semple said.
