Governor Alexander Beglov and Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Development Bank Nikolay Podguzov today signed an agreement of intent aimed at the implementation and financing of investment projects for the development of transport and communal infrastructure of St. Petersburg.

The agreement consolidates St. Petersburg's longstanding business ties with the EDB and gives rise to further cooperation, primarily in such projects as the construction of the Latitudinal Expressway and the Kupchino-Shushary-Slavyanka tram line.

How quickly and effectively these projects will be implemented depends on the development of the economy of St. Petersburg and the quality of life of the citizens,” said Alexander Beglov.

As a senior creditor, the Eurasian Bank invested 10 billion rubles in the construction of the WHSD. “All these projects are successful. The experience of cooperation we have gained should be used to solve other problems facing St. Petersburg,” the governor is sure.
