The Russian-occupied Muslim republic, Bashkortostan, which is located between the Volga River and the Ural Mountains, looks forward to develop its already varied economy through improving its scientific-based industries.
The President of the Muslim autonomous republic, Rustem Khamitov, has announced a few days ago tightening his nation’s industrial cooperation with Belarus and the famous Russian energy company Inter RAO UES.
Belarusian scientists are currently evaluating Bashkortostan’s research potential in order for both countries to implement joint projects, particularly in mechanical engineering, energy saving, medicine, molecular biology, and information technologies.
Bashkortostan has a considerable economic, manufacturing and research potential which is always compared to the ones of her neighbouring Russian-occupied Muslim autonomous republic of Tatarstan.
The bilateral cooperation between Bashkortostan and Belarus is mutually complementary as Bashkortostan exports petrochemical and metallurgical products, while imports household appliances and processing industry products.
The Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said that cooperation with Bashkortostan in research to practice and innovations was an important and promising avenue of cooperation.
Energy Cooperation Agreement
On the other hand, Interfax amd Steel GURU have also reported that the government of Bashkortostan has signed a five-year cooperation agreement on energy with the famous Russian energy company Inter RAO UES.
The signed agreement mentioned Inter RAO's intention to acquire a controlling stake by the end of this year in OJSC Bashkirenergo, a power and heat company operating in Bashkortostan.
The parties agreed to jointly develop Bashkortostan energy sector by modernising existing and developing new energy facilities.
