Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin and Murmansk Region Governor Andrey Chibis signed an Agreement on trade, economic, scientific, technical and cultural cooperation between the two regions, as well as a program for its implementation from 2021 to 2025.
Sergei Sobyanin noted that the signing of the document will benefit residents of both Russian regions. In turn, Andrei Chibis thanked the Moscow Government for its help in countering the spread of the new coronavirus infection. He stressed that the Murmansk region is ready to actively cooperate with the capital.
The agreement and program of cooperation between Moscow and the Murmansk region builds on the provisions of the previous document, which was signed in 2013… The cooperation program expands economic integration and strengthens bilateral ties of regions in the field of transport, information communications, industry, agro-industrial complex, trade and services, architecture and construction, housing and communal services, energy, improvement of urban areas, healthcare, education, science, culture, tourism and sports, environmental protection and others.
The Murmansk Region is a reliable trade and economic partner of Moscow in the food sector. From 2018 to 2019, enterprises of the Murmansk region delivered 38.2 thousand tons of fish products to the capital, including chilled and frozen fish, shrimp, squid, crabs, salmon caviar, hot and cold smoked fish, as well as canned food.
Moscow enterprises supply to the Murmansk region cars, motor gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, cables and wires, household washing machines, medical products and medicines, jewelry, as well as food products: meat, sausages, canned meat and vegetables, confectionery and pasta, tea and coffee, juices, milk, wine, cognac and alcoholic beverages.
Ties in education, healthcare and culture play an important role in bilateral cooperation. So, in 2018–2020, over two thousand residents of the Murmansk region were treated in Moscow city hospitals.
In addition, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Moscow donated over 2.2 million different medical devices to medical institutions in the Murmansk region, including oxygen concentrators, protective suits, medical masks, flowmeters, pulse oximeters, and non-invasive ventilators.
