The European Commission will further cooperation with Siberia's regions
The European Commission, the EU's highest executive body, will further cooperation with Siberia's regions, head of the European Commission Delegation to Russia Marc Franco said at the meeting with Presidential Envoy to the Siberian Federal District Anatoly Kvashnin in the largest city of the Asian part of Russia Tuesday. The Siberian district's information center said, Mr. Franco noted that the European Commission had decided to develop cooperation with a limited number of Russian regions. He said Russia was a large country and the European Commission had decided to concentrate their development of cooperation on several areas and cities because the commission's resources were not infinite. He added that Siberia and Novosibirsk were a natural choice. Mr. Franco said Novosibirsk was the second city in Russia that he had visited since he took office in September 2004. "Siberia is Russia's warehouse," Mr. Kvashnin said, "where large amounts of raw materials, energy potential and not smaller possibilities for the science and technology are concentrated." The European Commission's delegation, led by Mr. Franco, who replaced Richard Wright, arrived in Novosibirsk Tuesday. The purpose of Mr. Franco's visit is to assess the Novosibirsk region's economic, scientific, technical and educational potential, meet the regional leaders and expand contacts in different areas of cooperation. During their visit, the delegation will meet with Novosibirsk Region Governor Viktor Tolokonsky and top officials from the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and visit the Vektor State Scientific Center of Virology and Biotechnology, which is carrying out the most scientific projects financed by the European Commission in the Novosibirsk region
