The CEO of the CLAAS Group of Companies Ralph Bendish will take part in the program «AIC Leaders» (agricultural industry leaders), initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture of Bashkiria. Today, on the sidelines of the Sochi Investment Forum, the Ministry signed a cooperation agreement with the German manufacturer of forage harvesting equipment. This was reported to the Bashinform News Agency by the Vice-Premier – Interim Minister of Agriculture Ilshat Fazrakhmanov.
The head of the agricultural department explained that the agreement included a 5 percent discount and budget subsidies for the purchase of vehicles, which would make them more affordable to Bashkir farmers.

However, those who produce high-quality fodder, high-quality milk tend to acquire equipment of such a level”, explained Ilshat Fazrakhmanov. “In addition, an agreement was reached on the participation of Ralph Bendish in the "AIC Leaders" program. He will come to Ufa and give a lecture to our young specialists, and then invite them to visit factories in Krasnodar and Germany. I am glad that the head of such a large European company agreed to work with our young team.”
