Vadim Shumkov, Deputy Governor of the Tyumen region, participated in the meetings with ambassadors of Egypt and Oman to Russia on behalf of Vladimir Yakushev, Governor of the region. These meetings were held on April 10 in Moscow, at the embassies of the two countries.


Vadim Shumkov presented the investment and industrial capacity of the Tyumen region to the diplomats and told them about the activities of regional infrastructure development agency, potential exporters and collaboration offers in various areas.

Ihab Ahmed Talaat Nasr, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Arab Republic of Egypt, expressed his interest in export of the Tyumen goods such as: grain, flour, wood, plywood, oil and gas equipment. He believes that exports can be made to Egypt with the purpose of further re-export to the Arab and African partners of Egypt, significantly expanding the export markets.

The cooperation possibilities between businessmen of Egypt and the Tyumen region concerning the oil and gas sector and water treatment were also discussed. The possibility of launching the charter flights between Tyumen and Egypt was discussed as well.

Yousef bin Issa bin Ali al Zedjali, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Sultanate of Oman to the Russian Federation, expressed his interest in opportunities for establishment of joint ventures involved in production of components for the oil and gas industry and service equipment. He paid special attention to export opportunities for agricultural fertilizers typical for the Tyumen region and relatively new for Oman like sapropel and peat.

Experience of Tyumen residents in survey, prospecting and service works on hydrocarbon-bearing formations of great depth was of particular interest to the Omani side, as well as programs of survey and field drilling data processing. The Ambassador also expressed his interest in the field of oil and gas complex personnel training and gave notice on willingness to consider the possibility of signing an agreement with an educational institution for further work.

The proposal of Vadim Shumkov concerning the participation in establishment of a grain hub in the Tyumen region and development of its agro-industrial park was also considered attractive. The cooperation opportunities for constructing water treatment facilities in Oman using Tyumen technologies were also discussed.

Governor Vladimir Yakushev noted that the region actively develops international cooperation. “We arrange meetings and visits of delegations from various countries. All of this contributes to the economic development of the Tyumen region, expansion of partnerships, strengthening the tourism potential, enhancement of intercultural dialogue, greater cooperation in the field of education and healthcare as well as increases the interest in the region and its opportunities”, he said.
