According to the head of the republic, he was impressed by the exposition, where agricultural products and farmers of Bashkortostan presented their products.
The head of the region examined samples of agricultural equipment presented on the square in front of VDNH-Expo. In particular, Ryan Khasanov, director of the “Muromets” production association (one of the residents of the Inmash technopark in Sterlitamak), said that they were engaged in the production of a combine, which would cost 35-40% less than its main competitors. Radiy Khabirov invited the head of the enterprise to an “Investment Hour” session next Thursday. Representatives of another Sterlitamak enterprise LLC “Rigmash”, which is engaged in the production of lifting and transport equipment, received the same invitation.
