Saudis Visit Bashkortostan

A Saudi delegation will visit the republic of Bashkortostan in central Russia to explore opportunities, the republic’s President Rustem Khamitov said Monday during a visit to the Saudi city of Jeddah, according to the presidential web site.

The Saudis are interested in petrochemical, oil refining, banking, medical and agricultural projects, Khamitov said. “Representatives of major Saudi companies showed genuine interest in our republic and we are expecting a delegation of key executives from that country,” Khamitov said at Jeddah’s annual economic forum.
