Great Britain and Sverdlovsk Region explore economic cooperation
The agreement was announced at a meeting between First Vice Premier Vladimir Vlasov and Ambassador Extraordinary & Plenipotentiary of the United Kingdom to Russia Tim Barrow, Ural Business Consulting reports.
Economic relations between the Sverdlovsk Region and Great Britain have been cooperative. Trade turnover between the two came to more than $475 million in 2011, which was three times greater than 2010. Vlasov, though, sees room for expansion.
Barrow agreed, citing a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin an British Prime Minister David Cameron as evidence that the two will explore new ways of developing trade and economic ties.
Vlasov hopes to cooperate with Great Britain on machine-building, chemical and pharmaceutical industries and exhibitions, according to Ural Business Consulting.
