On Sakhalin, the Days of St. Petersburg were opened

26 September in the government of the region the Days of St. Petersburg in the Sakhalin region were inaugurated.

To participate in this cultural and business event in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk a representative delegation of officials and businessmen, workers of culture, education and collectives of the famous theaters of the northern capital arrived. Preparation for the Days of Culture of St. Petersburg on Sakhalin lasted two months.

- We are glad to welcome in the region, located on 59 islands, a delegation from St. Petersburg, with which we are bound by a cooperation agreement signed in 1997. I will briefly tell you about our region: the gross regional product of the region has exceeded 600 billion rubles, and 1 million 200 thousand rubles of it fall on each inhabitant of the region. The region accounts for the production of 5% of liquefied natural gas from everything produced in the world. In Russia, the region is in third place in gas production, in ninth - in oil production, - said the Deputy Prime Minister of the region Sergey Khotochkin.

According to him, on Sakhalin, they have been cooperating with the enterprises of St. Petersburg for a long time. For example, the North-Western Engineering Company designs the Sakhalin GRES-2, while other companies in the northern capital participated in the conversion of the Yuzhno-Sakhalinskaya CHPP to gas.

- For us, this is a unique opportunity to strengthen our business ties within the framework of the St. Petersburg Days in the Sakhalin Region. Especially in connection with the fact that the West is imposing sanctions against Russia. Hence, we need to broaden the development of interregional ties in a single manner, to exchange experience in the development of industrial potential. We know about the successes of the Sakhalin region and would like to participate in its further development. St. Petersburg is the largest industrial, scientific, educational and medical center in the country and we are ready to share our knowledge and experience, "said Vladimir Lavlentsev, vice-governor of St. Petersburg.

Note that the delegation of St. Petersburg has a lot of heads of structural subdivisions of the governing bodies of the northern capital, educational institutions and others.

- The trade turnover between the Sakhalin Region and St. Petersburg today is 730 million rubles. Of course, seafood comes from Sakhalin to a greater extent, and today, when the task is to replace imported goods with domestic ones, we have to work out a set of measures to increase the volume of supplies of high-quality fish products from you to us. But this requires a set of subsidized measures. At the beginning of October, we will hold a trading session, at which the circle of product suppliers is determined. And the biggest event ahead is the Christmas Market. Yakutia and the Khanty-Mansiysk Okrug traditionally participate in it, and entrepreneurs from there never go to waste, so we invite the Sakhalin Region too, '' added the Vice Governor, Chairman of the Committee for the Development of Entrepreneurship and the Consumer Market of St. Petersburg Elgiz Kachaev.

Also during the opening ceremony of the Days of Culture of St. Petersburg in the Sakhalin Region, issues of strengthening cooperation in the fields of education and culture, training of management personnel and health workers for the island region were preliminarily discussed.
