Nečas says Russia trip was successful

Prime Minister Petr Nečas has evaluated his four-day trip to Russia as successful, saying that the Czech delegation fulfilled all of their basic objectives. A group of Czech businesspeople travelling with the premier signed a number of lucrative contracts in different regions of the country worth billions of crowns. Mr Nečas is hoping that this trip will open the way for even more business opportunities for Czech companies in the future. At the end of the visit, he was also able to briefly meet with some members of Russian non-governmental organizations.
