Governor Misharin invites British business to visit fair

Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Alexander Misharin met the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United Kingdom to the Russian Federation Anne Pringle, who arrived in Yekaterinburg to look at the region’s socioeconomic development and to learn about the approach taken by the local authorities to counteract the global economic recession.


According to the spokesperson for the Governor, the UK has been one of Sverdlovsk Region’s top twenty foreign business partners over the last few years. In 2009, the two parties’ trade turnover totaled to $245.2m, which was the 13th largest figure among all the trade turnover reports for last year.


During her visit, the Governor told the Ambassador about the region’s development and said they were already coping with the damage done by the global economic recession.


Alexander Misharin invited the British businesses to take part in the region’s new project – an industrial exhibition that will take place for the first time in the summer of 2010.
