"Business contacts between Canada and Tatarstan are very important and are supported by the Republic's authorities," said Ildar Khalikov. He also added that the potential for political and business contacts between Tatarstan and Canada was huge. Prime Minister drew the participants' attention to the developed infrastructure of Tatarstan. 32 sports venues, new airport buildings, an aero express railway line, 12 multi-level interchanges were constructed for the 2013 World Summer Universiade. "Kazan has the lowest traffic congestion level in Russia," said Ildar Khalikov.
