The Nizhny Novgorod region needs to intensify cooperation with the Czech Republic, Governor of the region Valery Shantsev said during the meeting with Czech Republic Ambassador Vladimir Remek.
"We need to intensify work in the field of agriculture, agricultural products processing and transport infrastructure. In Strigino, for example, there is a Czech company that acts as the general contractor for the construction of the airport," said Valery Shantsev.
The Czech Ambassador visits the Nizhny Novgorod region at least once a year. A representative delegation of the country took part in the Third International Business Summit. In March 2014, the Russian region held a presentation at the Embassy of the Czech Republic for a large group of Czech entrepreneurs. This time, the ambassador organized a visit of a business mission to the region.
The Russian delegation was invited to a mechanical engineering exhibition in Brno. In turn, the Czech delegation, is getting ready to take part in the Fourth International Business Summit.
"We want to use the potential and long-standing tradition of cooperation with the Nizhny Novgorod region. Our goal is to increase the capacity that we have, - said Vladimir Remek. - Czech companies come to realize that they should locate their production facilities in Russia. We see a large potential in the Nizhny Novgorod region because of its active development and geographic position," the Czech Ambassador said.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
