“We have been co-operating since 2003 and now it’s time our partnership entered a new stage of development,” Vice Governor Vladimir Kravtsov said Wednesday as he met a delegation from Russia’s Sverdlovsk Region.
In turn, Sverdlovsk said they had implemented all clauses of the 2003 co-operation agreement with emphasis on partnership with Mogilev Elevator Plant.
Sverdlovsk suggested extending the agreement and filling its with new challenging content.
The Sverdlovsk delegation was taken on short tours of the Belynichi-based cheese factory run by Granny’s Jar, agritown Voskhod, Buinichi Field Memorial and the Zoo.

Mogilev exports to Sverdlovsk plastic goods, elevators, machinery and equipment, chemical fibres and threads, liquid pumps, waterproof footwear.
Sverdlovsk comes as a source of ferrous metals and aluminium.
