"The two previous missions consisting of 24 Australian companies were a success. Most companies already made contracts with foreign and Russian enterprises involved in Sakhalin oil and gas projects," Leslie Rowe said.
Businessmen representing coal, timber and fish processing industries of Australia visited Sakhalin this time. The island is famous for these riches.
The ambassador hopes the businessmen have found partners in Sakhalin. The Australian embassy in Russia coordinates the continent's cooperation with Russia's Far East. Leslie Rowe visited Sakhalin for the fourth time already. According to him, the fourth trade mission will come to the island this fall.
The diplomat is sure in the successful development of Australian-Sakhalin economic links.
