Speech of the Temporary Acting Governor of Ugra Natalya Komarova at the meeting with the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary ambassador of the Czech Republic in the Russian Federation Vladimir Remek and the Temporary Acting as the General Consul general of

Good afternoon, Mr. Ambassador, dear Mr. Sommer.

Ugra and the Czech Republic have the extensive experience of practical mutually beneficial cooperation.

On the basis of our cooperation agreement with South Moravian region, in 2014 for the development of economic relations one more agreement between Ugra Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Union of the Czech and Moravian production cooperatives was signed. Our businesses have many points of production and investment contact, and are to receive permanent business platforms for cooperation. I think we can work out such opportunities, hold joint thematic meetings with representatives of the business environment, dated for the planned events in our region and with our partners in the Czech Republic. Now Ugra Chamber of Commerce and Industry holds negotiations with the Union of the Czech and Moravian production cooperatives on the organization to our region of the trade mission consisting of members of the Czech production cooperatives who will take part in Ugra industrial forum in April, 2015. We hope for the successful negotiations.

During the visit of your delegation to our autonomous area, I am sure, we will agree on the further cooperation of the Forest Servicing Company "Ugraleskhoz" and Brno Agricultural and Forestry University of Mendel on training the masters of forest management.    This economic sector actively develops in our region. We stake on new modern production of wood processing and its application in various fields, therefore we need experts of high level and are ready to cooperation in this regard.

We are partners with Brno city. Brno is widely known exhibition center.  Ugra enterprises are active participants of the international exhibition and fair events which are held there, first of all, in tourist, agricultural and power fields. These connections allow to expand into  new sales markets, to exchange the best practices. And, we  still have huge potential for further development of economic cooperation. The foreign trade turnover of Ugra and regions of the Czech Republic is still low and makes a little more than 1 million US dollars. It is obvious that we have perspectives for growth to occupy more noticeable and corresponding to our opportunities share of mutual trade.

We intent to consider the Czech Republic as the exclusive partner.

The best perspectives we see in the development of the projects connected with clear water, co-generation plant implementation, waste sorting and processing.  Development of our relations in these fields can have not only economic, but also social return. In 2015 our district will become a platform for many important international events at which our business communities could make their connections actual. It is the Seventh International IT forum with participation of the BRICS and SCO countries in July, 2015, the 15th interregional specialized exhibition - forum "Energy Saving — a Strategic Vector of Development" (October, 2015), the specialized tourist exhibition “Ugra-tour”  (November, 2015). We will be glad to see you and your compatriots at any of these events.

I suggest to consider not only economic, but also the humanitarian agenda. Our athletes keep regular communications and exchanges,  including adaptive sport. In September, 2013 heads of social service of Ugra population establishments exchanged experience with representatives of institutions of South Moravian region social development system. As a result, we borrowed interesting techniques and projects of social work with elderly people, physically disabled people. In particular, it is a technique of stage-by-stage social adaptation of physically disabled people with application of various forms of accommodation, and also projects of rendering the social services "Social Taxi", "Foster Home for the Elderly Person".

Also we have intensive contacts in education. At Ugra University the Center of the Czech language is open. Since 2009 over 100 people of our region were trained in it.

In a year of the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, liberation of fraternal people from oppression of Nazism and fascism we will hold a number of joint events. In honor of this event our youth organizations have planned memorable motor rally on the cities of Europe which were freed by the Soviet soldiers. From April 24 to April 27 they are to visit places of fighting glory in the cities of Prague and Brno.  Hetman of South Moravian region Michal Gashek has already expressed his readiness to render assistance in carrying out their mission. We are grateful to him and all Czech people for respect of memory of soldiers-liberators.  It is our common historical debt.

Once again I thank you, Mr. Ambassador, and you, Mr. Sommer, that you have found time and possibility to come to Ugra. We are glad to see you both and we expect the further enlargement of our cooperation.
