The Italian Ambassador in Moscow, Cesare Maria Ragaglini, will lead a mission in Ekaterinburg, the capital of the Russian region of Sverdlovsk, on 19 and 20 June. The mission, organised by ICE (the Italian Trade Agency’s office) in Moscow will include 20 Italian firms from the mechanics, construction, furniture and logistics sectors. Within the Federation, this region is one of those most open to foreign investors, offering interesting opportunities to our companies. The programme will pivot around an event about investments entitled “Italy meets the Urals”, which will include business meetings between Italian and Russian firms. The agenda also promises a meeting between Ambassador Ragalini and the temporary governor of the region of Sverdlovsk, Mr Kuyvashev, and the Mayor of Ekaterinburg, Mr Rojzman. A press conference will take place at the end of the mission in the premises of the Journalists’ Union.
