The large delegation from Tatarstan, headed by the acting Prime-Minister Ravil Muratov, arrived in Ufa for participation in the international forum “Big Chemistry”, held in Ufa today.
“We are going to discuss very actual problems for Russian economics at this forum” – Ravil Muratov said at today’s plenary session – “Development of economics through oil-chemistry is not an empty phrase for us and I hope the volumes of oil-chemical output will rise on the assumption of successful integration with all cities in Volga zone”.
Ravil Muratov reminded that the prior development of chemical industry in the country still failed to be developed in full volume. Only 3,5 million tons of ten million tons of hydrocarbon gases, produced in Russia today, are spent for the needs of oil-chemistry. Some productions in sphere of oil-chemistry are totally absent in Russia and as a result the import of goods in such spheres goes up, though foreign manufacturers often use the Russian staff.
“We have to concentrate ourselves on still unsolved problems and first of all on the problems with the staff resources” – Rail Muratov stated – “We do hope our plans will become a reality and all problems will be solved. We are proud of the potentials of Tatarstan and Bashkortostan and have no doubts that all problems, posed before our republics, will be solved at last”.
