“Just like the Penza region, we have no mineral resources of our own, so we focus on highly skilled professionals that are able to implement innovations,” he pointed out.
Moreover, Wolfgang Wolf stressed that his current visit to the Penza region was not the last, and expressed hope for establishing a long-standing and fruitful mutual cooperation.
