A number of companies from the European Union countries are ready to implement their investment projects in Crimea despite the current sanctions against the region, Crimean governor Sergei Aksyonov said on Saturday.
He said he met with several Western business representatives on Saturday as part of an international economic forum in Yalta. "Since this morning I have had meetings with investors from Germany, then there were the Irish, the Swiss, and the Czech, there were representatives from Israel as well. There were the Italians - they are going to set up a network of cheese factories here.
All of them are ready to invest," Aksyonov told reporters in Yalta, without naming the western companies ready to operate in Crimea. The two-day Yalta economic forum, which ended on Saturday, was held for the first time. The event was attended by some 600 entrepreneurs and company representatives from 13 countries.
