Sverdlovsk Region Governor Alexander Misharin hosted a delegation from US-based DuPont, one of the world’s leaders in the chemical industry, on 6 June. DuPont manufactures innovative materials for construction, agriculture, food production, energy and transport.
Governor Misharin, in greeting the delegation, underscored that their visit to the Urals will serve as the beginning of mutually beneficial cooperation between the two sides.
“DuPont products are well known in the Sverdlovsk region; today’s goal is to establish a strategic partnership with DuPont, open up an official representative office in Ekaterinburg and have the company work closely with our universities and research institutes,” Governor Misharin said. He also pointed out DuPont’s participation in INNOPROM-2011 will be a positive factor: “DuPont is a world famous company. You are able to work in many different fields with businesses in the Sverdlovsk region. I hope that participating in INNOPROM will give the incentive for developing these ties”.
