Indian companies of pulp and paper industry are interested in localizing in the Moscow SEZ
Today the Embassy of India hosted a meeting of Indian and Russian companies engaged in the pulp and paper industry. One of the most important topics of the meeting was the issue of increasing imports and exports between the countries and strengthening the investment component of interaction between businessmen from both countries.
Alice Maltseva, the Managing Director for external relations of SEZ “Technopolis “Moscow”, told Indian colleagues about the advantages of localizing in the Moscow SEZ. “We see a great interest of India in the development of trade with Russia, - said Alice Maltseva. - It is profitable for Indian companies to establish joint ventures with Russian companies to increase import and export contracts. With the development of trade relations, sooner or later there will be a question of placing production in Russia. A localization in the SEZ will not only make it easier to enter the Moscow market, but also allow the use of preferences for residents and thus save up to 47% of the cost of tax payments”.
Following the speech of SEZ “Technopolis “Moscow” managing Director, agenda of the future meeting with Indian companies was formed: Hero, Shree Venkatesh Paper Mart V. S. Paper Mart PVT ltd, Pushkar paper agencies, Satyan Shivam Paper PVT ltd and Ramchandar Shivnarayan sons will meet with the SEZ managing company.
