KHNATY-MANSIYSK (Sputnik) — Authorities in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area (Yugra) are preparing a package of investment proposals to promote economic cooperation with Japan, said Yugra Governor Natalya Komarova.
“In the next few days, the Russian president will visit Japan for the first time in 11 years. Japan has established the post of Minister for Economic Cooperation with Russia. We are interested in high-level economic cooperation with Japan,” Komarova said.
“This year, Yugra joined the top 10 regions of the national investment rating, which means that we have created a favorable investment environment for our foreign partners. Yugra’s investment and export capacities are booming. This year alone, our businesses have 18 contracts to export various products, from foodstuffs to wood house kits,” said a representative of the Public and External Relations Department.
