The two countries were also holding an investment seminar to highlight bilateral investment opportunities in the fields of trade, investment, IT and biotechnology. At the seminar, Tatarstan presented the republic’s two priority development projects – SMART City Kazan and Innopolis – launched by the republic to create needed investment infrastructure and platforms in business services, the service industry and IT industry.

The Tatarstan delegation also visited Medini Iskandar, a 9.3 square kilometer Smart City within Iskandar Malaysia, a development corridor in the south of Malaysia.

The Tatarstan president also said that his republic’s leading universities were keen to participate in student exchange programmes with Malaysia, while Malaysia’s Naza Group, a privately-owned conglomerate with businesses in the automotive industry, property development, food and beverage and hotel management, is talking to Kamaz, the leading truck maker in Tatarstan, on the prospect of venturing into the heavy industry.

Tatarstan, located in the Volga Federal District, is one of Russia’s larger and more prosperous republics. It is highly industrialised, with oil, petrochemicals and machinery being the most important sectors. Engineering, textiles, clothing, wood processing, and food industries are also of key significance in Tatarstan.

The most important facilities of higher education include Kazan State University, Kazan State Medical University, Kazan State Technological University, Kazan State Finance and Economics Institute and Russian Islamic University.
