The Chinese company Sinohydro Corporation Ltd plans to open an office in Ufa, the press-service of the Government RB informs. At the initial stage it will be located in the office of the Development Corporation of the Republic of Bashkortostan. As the amount of contracts and projects will increase it is planned to create a full-fledged office with its own staff in the region.

“Ufa will be the first city in Russia, where our representative office will be opened”, the President of Sinohydro Corporation Ltd Song Dongsheng said.

Today, the parties are discussing joint work on forming of a special regional economic zone in the industrial park in the city of Agidel. In addition, the Chinese partners are interested in participation in construction and installation works on construction of paid roads in the Republic of Bashkortostan.
