From the regions of Karelia to Saint Petersburg

Representatives of many industrial enterprises of our republic have visited the northern capital during the finished Days of Culture of Karelia in Saint Petersburg. It confirms opinion of the governor Vladimir Yakovleva and the Head of the RK Sergey Katanandov that Karelia is one of the main economic partners of the city upon Neva. Thus, seven areas of the northern capital and Karelia have direct contracts on cooperation. That is why the Karelian delegation included heads of self-governments of the towns of Pitkaranta, Sortavala, Petrozavodsk, and of Louhsky, Lahdenpohsky, Olonetsky, and Medvezhiegorsky districts. Not only agreements in force testify to the fact that the two northern neighbours have great prospects, but also the fact that both Saint Petersburg and Karelia have nineteen districts each, so there's plenty of partners for cooperation for all self-governed territories of Karelia.

Karelia has brought to the northern capital not only its cultural program, but also has shown the opportunities of economy of the republic. Stands of the leading enterprises of wood branch from different districts of Karelia, Open Society "Karelsky okatysh (Karelian Iron-Or Pellets)" (Kostomuksha), Open Society "Karelsky Granit (Karelian Granite)" and Open Company SPC "Carbon-Schungite" (Prionezhsky district), Open Society "The Factory of Stonecast Products and Mineral Raw Materials" (Kondopoga) operated constantly.

Unique delicious production was demonstrated by the bakers and confectioners from Petrozavodsk and Kondopoga combine Slavmo, Sortavala milk processing factory, Byelomorsk fish processing plant.

Colleagues from administration of the northern capital shared their impressions on the fact that within a few days they have managed to see and get to know the opportunities of Karelia which they couldn't imagine before from the new point of view.
