Sverdlovsk to work with Crimean government, business owners to improve infrastructure

During a meeting last week in Yekaterinburg between Sverdlovsk Governor Evgeny Kuyvashev and a delegation of Crimean business leaders, both parties agreed to engage in projects aimed to develop Crimea's infrastructure and economy.

One of the major actions to come out of last week's meeting was for Sverdlovsk-area distributing companies to help Crimean Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food Nicholas Polyushkin to ship the 200 billion tons of grain harvested in Crimea thus far in 2014 to the rest of the world, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.

Crimea's agriculture industry has suffered from military conflicts by cutting off the country's methods of distributing its salable goods.

Moreover, Sverdlovsk-area entrepreneur Mikhail Remez recently returned from a two-day trip to Crimea, where he met with members of the Crimean business community to offer his advice for globalizing their enterprises, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta.

Remez's expertise largely falls in airport ownership and operation; he is expected to return to work with Simferopol's airport management team.

"One of the most important outcomes of the visit was the signing of a cooperation between the cities of Kamensk and Theodosius," Sverdlovsk Vice Chairman Yakov Silin said, regarding the recent visits made by parties to and from Crimea and the Sverdlovsk region, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports. "The agreement involves the interaction of a known, reputable in the country has proven its strength and has great potential Sverdlovsk region with the local government system, which to build the Republic of Crimea. Of course, our colleagues is interesting and important to know, as we passed your way, what mistakes which have gained experience and what we have prospects--it is very important that we share."

Meanwhile, Crimean Chamber of Commerce President Alexander Basov is expected to work with Sverdlovsk-area technology companies to develop methods of desalinating sea water to provide Crimean farmers with a safe and renewable supply of water for their crops.

Other Crimean business development plans will leverage the country's recent improvements in the production of low power electric motors, ship automation systems, synchros, special sensor technologies and power tools to bolster the area economy, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta.
