Representatives from 10 small- and medium-sized businesses in the Sverdlovsk region attended the VII International Hungarian-Russian Economic Forum in Budapest on Monday.
The attendees discussed partnerships and cooperative measures during more than 50 meetings with Hungarian business leaders, and signed many agreements of intent.
The Sverdlovsk Regional Entrepreneurship Fund's European Information Consulting Center organized the trip to the forum where the overarching theme was joint investment opportunities.
Guests from both countries were able to discuss partnerships, while growing their business networks.
In addition to representatives from the Sverdlovsk region, the forum included delegates from the Republic of Bashkortostan, Kaluga, Rostov, the Samara Region, Altai Krai, Moscow and St. Petersburgh.
Approximately 200 representatives from the Hungarian government, research organizations and the business community were in attendance.
