Sverdlovsk and the Republic of South Africa representatives met Thursday to discuss the final organizational details concerning exporting South African meat to the Sverdlovsk region.
The collaboration would allow meat exporters from South Africa could supply various meats, including beef, pork, antelope, ostrich, and zebra, to the Sverdlovsk area, the Ural Chamber of Commerce reported.
South African exporters are also interested in organizing a way to send wines to Russia.
The growing partnership between Russia and South Africa began with earlier negotiations between South African President Jacob Zuma and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of South Africa Mandisi Mpahlwa was at Thursday's meeting. It was his third time in Urals. Mpahlwa will lead the selected farmers in exporting meats to Russia.
The South African delegation is maintaining a busy schedule in the Sverdlovsk region. They are scheduled to meet with the governor, attend business forums, view shopping centers and meet with officials from the Ural Mining University and the Ural Chamber of Commerce.
