DUSHANBE, July 28, 2016, Asia-Plus – Enterprises of Nizhny Novgorod oblast will deliver ambulances, municipal vehicles and special vehicles for police to Tajikistan, Yevgeny Lyulin, the deputy governor of Nizhny Novgorod, told reporters on July 27.

According to him, an agreement on this subject was reached during a recent visit of Nizhny Novgorod governor Valery Shantsev to Tajikistan.

“Besides, agreements on gypsum plasterboard deliveries were signed in Tajikistan,” said Lyulin.  “An agreement on using the Nizhny Novgorod-made hydraulic equipment at the trolleybus assembly plant in Dushanbe is expected to be signed next month.”

“Under the current economic situation, because of switch rate, the Nizhny Novgorod industrial enterprises can earn more from exports than from other orders.  Especially it is important for the regional auto industry where production volumes have fallen nearly 20 percent because of decline in consumer demand,” the deputy governor stressed.

We will recall that during his visit to Dushanbe, Nizhny Novgorod governor Valery Shantsev held talks with Tajik President Emomali Rahmon and Dushanbe Mayor Mahmadsaid Ubaidulloyev to discuss state and prospects of further expansion of bilateral cooperation between Tajikistan and the Russian Federation.     

Nizhny Novgorod Oblast is a federal subject of Russia (an oblast) with a population of 3,310,597 (2010 Census).  Its administrative center is the city of Nizhny Novgorod, which is the fifth-largest city in Russia.

Nizhny Novgorod Oblast is not rich in natural resources, which are limited to commercial deposits of sand (including titanium-zirconium sands), clay, gypsum, peat, mineral salt, and timber.

The oblast ranks seventh in Russia in industrial output.  Processing industries predominate in the local economy.  More than 650 industrial companies employ nearly 700,000 people, or 62% of the workforce involved in material production. Industry generates 83% of the regional GDP and accounts for 89% of all material expenditures.  The leading sectors are engineering and metalworking, followed by chemical and petrochemical industries and forestry, woodworking, and paper industries.  The first three sectors account for about 75% of all industrial production.
