BUENOS AIRES, March 14 (Itar-Tass) – Uruguay's President Jose Mujica is interested in developing cooperation with Russia in the field of shipbuilding and hydropower engineering, a St Petersburg delegation source told Itar-Tass Wednesday by telephone from Montevideo after the delegation had a meeting with the Head of that South American country.
The source quoted the Uruguayan leader as saying that "there is an important potential of mutually beneficial cooperation" with the businessmen of Russia and those of St Petersburg, in particular, and expressed satisfaction with the fact that "our contacts develop dynamically and reach out to a higher level".
The St Petersburg city delegation, led by Vyacheslav Makarov, Chairman of the city's Legislative Assembly, also met with Montevideo Mayor Ana Olivera. Their talks resulted in the signing of a protocol which provides for interaction in the social sphere, in the fields of science and culture, and for broader business contacts.
A business seminar was held in Uruguay within the framework of the visit. The seminar was declared open by the delegation leader who emphasized that St Petersburg is a city "which affords a significant investment potential" and pointed out Russian businesses' interest in cooperation with Uruguayan partners.
Besides, during the talks, the National Port Administration (ANP) of Uruguay and the Association of Merchant Seaports of Russia signed a framework agreement on cooperation.
