Russia to take part in Izmir International Fair as partner country for the time
Russia will take part in the Izmir International Fair in Turkey for the first time as a partner country. Russian and Turkish economy ministries plan to discuss the remaining sensitive issues at the fair in August, Russian Deputy Economic Development Minister Alexei Gruzdev said.
He noted that certain regional delegations from Russia took part in the fair earlier, but this is the first time when it is as a partner country.
"There may be new issues for cooperation and certainly we will solve all the remaining sensitive issues with our partners from Turkey’s economy ministry," TASS cited Gruzdev as saying.
He noted that the Economic Development Ministry jointly with Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade are forming the national exposition and a business program. Russia’s exposition will amount to over 600 square meters. "In my view, this will be the largest [exposition among participants]," he said.
Gruzdev said that during the fair, a number of roundtables devoted to various areas of cooperation will be held, including to agriculture and machinery.
The 86th Izmir International Fair will be held on August 18-22. This year’s event will focus on energy and innovations
