The presentation of Russia's Ural federal district in 2002 is planned to be held in Western Europe and in China, the presidential envoy in the district, Pyotr Latyshev, told journalists Thursday. He noted a reasonable growth of investments in the region's enterprises in the last year. The envoy says much of the growth is thanks to the district's London presentation, which enabled British companies to get acquainted with the Ural enterprises. Latyshev believes the district's authorities succeeded in establishing a positive dialogue with various business structures.
