Sverdlovsk Region could soon welcome Japanese companies

Sverdlovsk Governor Evgeny Kuivashev recently traveled to Japan with a team of regional delegates to meet with Japanese industrial trade minister Takayuki Ueda to solidify plans for a bilateral partnership.

Japanese officials are expected to visit Moscow several times throughout 2013 as a means of strengthening Russian-Japanese trade relations. The Japanese have high expectations for the outcomes of a series of meetings to occur this year between the two countries, according to Ural Business Consulting.

Kuivashev's current trip marks the first time Russian officials have visited Japan this year. Sources close to the governor's office said that Sverdlovsk officials expect to secure Japanese cooperation with Russia's ongoing industrial programs by the conclusion of the visit, Ural Business Consulting reports.
