Udeges of the Primorskiy Kray agree with company “Terneyles” upon partnership and interaction

On 27 May 2004 a cooperation agreement was signed in Vladivostok between the Association of Northern Indigenous People of the Primorskiy Kray and the open joint company “Terneyles”, one of the largest timber industry enterprises of the Russian Far East.

The agreement states the obligation to observe international principles and standards concerning the rights of indigenous people. This is of prime significance for the movement of the Northern indigenous peoples in Russia , because an industrial company wants not only to cooperate within the framework of its activities, but also to contribute on the whole to a development programme for the indigenous peoples of Primore.
