Slovenian companies are interested in joining construction projects for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in the southern Russian city of Sochi, the country's prime minister has said.
"Sochi offers great opportunities. The [Russian] prime minister and I spoke that it would be fine to strike commercial deals between [Russian] organizations and Slovenian companies. It is very important for us," Slovenian Prime Minister Borut Pahor said on Tuesday at a meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
He also invited Russian companies to take part in privatization of Slovenian enterprises.
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin visited Slovenia on Tuesday. A number of deals were signed during the visit, including on a joint venture between the Russian gas giant Gazprom and Slovenia's Geoplin Plinovodi to build the Slovenian section of the South Stream gas pipeline.
