Ambassador meets representatives of Esch-sur-Alzette communal council

On April 5 Ambassador Mark Entin travelled to the city of Esch-sur-Alzette where he paid a courtesy visit to City Mayor Lidya Mutsch. During the meeting, which took place in a warm and friendly atmosphere, Ms. Mutsch and her deputies outlined the activities of the local government.

Participants shared the view that in times of economic crises both Russian and Luxembourg, as well as other European municipalities face similar problems. Some of which are associated with the transfer of production abroad and relocation of backbone enterprises from industrial regions.

Such challenges can be met through consolidating existing economic relations, as well as developing and broadening bilateral cooperation between our two countries. The vast part of the meeting was devoted to the discussion of specific prospects for Russian-Luxembourg cooperation in this area.
