Yakutians met with the Japanese company "Sakha diamond corporation"


Representatives of the Yakut delegation visited the office of the Japanese Joint-Stock Company "Sakha Diamond Corporation" in Tokyo.





 The delegation consisted of Deputy Chairman of Almazergienbank Nikolay Baramygin, Director of the Republican Manchaary National Sports Center, Il Tumen Deputy Innokenty Grigoriev, FILA International Referee Oleg Dadaskinov, Mas-Wrestling Master of Sports of the Republic Evgueny Ivanov.


Former Representative Director of "Sakha Diamond Corporation" Mr. Yasuhiro Konno and current Director Mr. Inowe-san heartily welcomed their guests and organized an excursion of the exhibition hall dedicated to Yakutia.

“By some quirk of fate I twisted fortune with your republic. It was right after the collapse of the Soviet Union and during the election of the first President Mikhail Nikolayev. And since then, I have been in long-term relationships with your republic. Primarily I had very warm relations with academician Vladimir Larionov who 10 years ago offered me to go into diamond cutting enterprise. By the way, on the eighth floor of "Sakha Diamond Corporation" there used to be a sales representative of Yakutia. Mr. Baramygin worked there as the second representative of the Republic in Japan”,- said Mr. Konno-san.

It is worth noting that this year marks exactly 10 years since Mr. Konno-san began to perform the duties of President of the Company. Mr. Inowe previously was Vice President of the Company.
