Favori LLC (part of the Turkish group of companies KOZUVA HOLDING) is considering the construction of a river port in Agidel, as well as a hotel and a multi-level parking lot near the Ufa railway station. This was announced during a meeting of Rustam Muratov - the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Bashkortostan and the Minister of Economic Development and Investment Policy of the Republic of Bashkortostan - with Bora Ishiner, a member of the Board of Directors of Kozuva Group.
"The Republic of Turkey occupies the 12th place in the foreign trade turnover of the Republic of Bashkortostan, the mutual trade turnover is US$ 104 Million We highly appreciate the intentions of the company "Kozuva" and are ready to provide full support in the implementation of projects. The republic has created 5 Priority Social and Economic Development Areas (PSEDA), a industrial production special economic zone "Alga", and industrial parks. The Government of the Republic is also considering the creation of a port-type SEZ in Agidel. "This will create comfort conditions for investors and improve the socio-economic situation of the city," Rustam Muratov said.
The creation of a material river port on the territory of Agidel will reduce the cost of transporting mass, heavy and bulky cargo and ensure the development of the internal Russian transport infrastructure along the "strategic Ural meridian", as well as increase the export potential of the internal regions of Russia and the transportation of goods to the countries of Europe and the Middle East.
"The Republic of Bashkortostan is interested in the development of transportation infrastructure aimed at increasing the export potential and creating additional logistics routes in the region. The port in Agidel can aid in the development of the republic's exports through navigable waterways," Margarita Bolycheva, Chairman of the State Committee of the Republic of Bashkortostan on Foreign Economic Relations and Congress Activity, said.
