Rishat Khalikov, Acting Plenipotentiary Representative of the Republic of Bashkortostan to the President of Russia, said that the main ongoing project between the republics is Akkuyu, a nuclear power plant under construction on Turkey's Mediterranean coast.

"For the first time, 10% of Turkey's electricity will be supplied to Bashkiria. We are also actively developing bilateral cooperation in agriculture - we supply wheat," Rishat Khalikov noted.

The growing cooperation between the Republic of Bashkortostan and the Republic of Turkey was reported by Margarita Bolycheva, Minister of Foreign Economic Relations and Congress Activities of the region.

"We see great potential in the development of foreign economic relations of our republic with Turkey, including in export supplies of products of chemical, petrochemical and woodworking industries, metallurgy and agro-industrial complex. Thus, according to the results of 2023, the Republic of Turkey ranks second among the countries-counterparts of the region in terms of foreign trade turnover with a share of 13.7%, while the index of exports from Bashkortostan to Turkey increased 2.2 times compared to 2022," said Margarita Bolycheva.

Officials from Turkey and Bashkiria also spoke about their impressions of the RUSSIA EXPO.

"It is very impressive! I congratulate everyone involved in the preparation of this Exposition and wish that the successes and achievements continue and multiply," Günhan Emre Ersoy emphasized.

Rishat Khalikov noted that the Exposition should be called grandiose.

"Only Vladimir Putin could come up with and suggest such a project! This is just some kind of national museum! And it is very important to us that Vladimir Vladimirovich believes that the Republic of Bashkortostan has always played a special significant part in life, history and destiny of Russia," he said.

The International RUSSIA EXPO is the most important achievements of the country gathered in one place. More than 7 million people have already visited the Exposition. The International RUSSIA EXPO takes place at VDNH in Moscow from November 4 to July 8.
