Stockmann might set up store in Yekaterinburg

‘We can only welcome more Finnish businesses in the Mid-Urals,’ Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Alexander Misharin said at his meeting with Finland’s Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Paavo Väyrynen.

The Minister arrived in Sverdlovsk Region as the head of a special delegation made up of some 150 representatives of the Finnish business community.

The Governor declared he was glad to see more Finnish companies arrive in the Mid-Urals and said he believed the region and the Finnish businesses needed more joint ventures, including those in the field of innovations, transportation, logistics, and the timber industry.

Alexander Misharin also spoke of the support the local authorities are ready to offer Stockmann, the Finnish chain store, should they decide to set up one in Yekaterinburg.
