Vladivostok, 5 September 2019. The Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) and REGION Leasing, a member of the REGION Group of Companies – one of Russia’s largest private investment holdings, intend to jointly prepare and implement projects in priority economic sectors. The respective memorandum was signed on 5 September in Vladivostok at the Eastern Economic Forum by Vsevolod Smakov, Member of the Management Board and Head of the EDB’s Energy and Industry Block, and Rustem Mukhamedov, General Director of REGION Leasing.

“The memorandum is fully in line with the objectives we at the Eurasian Development Bank set today. The industries listed in the memorandum are our key areas of operation. We hope that this is just the first step in our cooperation with REGION Leasing and that we’ll soon announce interesting joint projects,” Vsevolod Smakov commented.

“REGION Leasing and the Eurasian Development Bank are the companies that focus on development projects – the breakthrough ones with high competitive potential. We will aim our joint efforts at solving large-scale investment tasks using the leasing mechanism in the oil and gas, environmental, mechanical engineering, agricultural and other key economic sectors in the Eurasian Economic Union’s countries. It is also important that, in addition to a business result, our work can produce an integration effect by enhancing business and infrastructure connectivity between the EAEU member states. We are confident that this strategic partnership will be of benefit to all – our corporate clients, the national economies, the state, and people,” Rustem Mukhamedov added.
