The MoU was a result of the series of meetings and conferences that were held with the government officials and representatives from various Russian industries in order to explore mines and metallurgy sectors.

Further, CM Fadnavis also intends to invite Russian companies to Vidarbha to tap foreign direct investments and the mutual partnership in exchange of expertise and technology in the metallurgy and mining sectors.
