The delegation of the Japanese trade house ITOCHU is found in Bashkiria on a business visit. On March 2 the guests have visited the town of Sibay, where they became acquainted with the exhibition of local enterprises and with the work of Sibay division of JSC “Utchalinsky ore mining and processing enterprise”. The representatives of the Asian company have also held a meeting with the local administration, in the course of which the parties were discussing possible directions of future cooperation.

“The main goal of the meeting was establishment of the partnership relations” – the deputy head of Sibay administration Nail Khaliullin reported – “In the person of the Japanese corporation ITOCHU we see the potential investors. Our enterprises introduced several innovational projects. The guests have highly appreciated the prospects of these projects. They were especially interested in production of building materials, made of basalt fiber. The Japanese say certain projects may be of interest but a part of these projects needs additional completion and here we figure on the support of the Government RB”.

On March 3 ITOCHU representatives will visit the towns of Beloretsk and Blagoveshensk. Besides, the signing of the cooperation protocol between the company and the Government RB and visits to some industrial enterprises in the region are also scheduled on Thursday.
