Dear Members and Friends,

CERBA in collaboration with the Ministry of International Cooperation and Foreign Economic Relations of Zabaykalsky Krai is pleased to invite its members and partners to join the Canadian business mission to Zabaikalye

Zabaikalye is the so-called Eastern Gateway to Russia and is world-renowned for its Trans-Siberian and Baikal-Amur express railroads. The region is strategically positioned from a geographical perspective to engage economically with a number of jurisdictions in this area of the Asia-Pacific Region including countries such as China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan. The area itself is rich in mineral resources and has 1,4 million hectares of land available for forestry and agricultural development.

Among the many projects proposed for international cooperation are:

  • grain cultivation ("Plemennoy Zavod “Komsomolets" project);
  • livestock and genetics ("Transbaikal Centre of Breeding);
  • leather and wool processing (LLC “Fortuna”);
  • lumber and charcoal (LLC “Rusles”);
  • ecotourism; 
  • mining.

Program details

To explore the full business potential of the Zabaikalsky region, the Ministry of International Cooperation and Foreign Economic Relations has developed a specialized 5-day program for Canadian companies including a return visit to "Komsomolets" Breeding Factory. This particular enterprise is one of the largest agricultural producers in the region with the main focus on cattle breeding, crops and sheep production.

The program will also include site visits, meetings with local business and government officials, a roundtable for presentations of potential Canadian projects and discussions on cooperation going forward into the future. 

We have also included a 2-day tour to a glimmering Blue Pearl of Siberia - historic Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world and its largest freshwater reservoir.
