On August 26 the President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov has visited the town of Sibay and Baimaksky region of Bashkortostan. The head of the Republic has learned the economic and social development of this trans-Ural area and visited several agricultural enterprises and institutions of education and health protection.
In Sibay Rustem Khamitov has held the meeting with the members of the Government RB, heads of the regional municipal administrations and representatives of business circles. The situation in agriculture and woodworking industry and the ways of their development were under consideration.
“We have much wood but woodworking is developed very poorly and as a result the timber “leaves” for the neighboring regions – to Chelyabinsk and Orenburg. It is inadmissible” – in such a way the President of Bashkiria outlined the problem.
The results of the measures on overcoming the drought’s consequences were discussed separately. The President RB has reproached with technically weak equipping of the agricultural branch. Thus, agricultural processing and the meat branch in particular don’t work in full swing. In opinion of Rustem Khamitov a competent transport logistics is called to make a good push to integrated development of the trans-Ural zone and the second birth of the airport of Sibay is able to breathe new life to the local economics.
