Japanese investors became interested in linseed growing in Smolensk region


The Smolensk region governor presented to Japanese investors the prospects for growing oil flax in the region, reports UkrAgroConsult. The head of the regions noted that any other species of this plant can also be cultivated here. And Smolensk region is suitable for rape growing, too.

“If the Japanese investor comes to Smolensk region to grow oil flax for producing linseed oil and builds a processing plant here, this will be very beneficial for businesses. The more so as this is the shortest route for supplying the produced commodities to the European Union,” said Alexey Ostrovsky at a meeting with Hokkaido Corporation General Director Yukio Temma and JFE Engineering Corporation’s representative Kimbara Masaki.
