From 1 through 4 July 2009, the Russian Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Mr Igor Manylov, paid a visit to the Dutch Landregistry Kadaster.

Leading towards an Internet shop for cadastral information services, such as the services in the Netherlands.
Mr Manylov stood at the head of a small delegation comprising of two Deputy Directors-General of the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography (RosReestr), the head of the Facilities department of the Ministry of Economic Development and the head of the international department of FCC Zemlya. The interest of the delegation went in particular to the topics e-Government, Kadaster-on-line, National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) and organisational development. This relates to the fact that on 1 March 2009 three Russian agencies were merged into the Federal Service of State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography . As Deputy Minister, Mr Manylov is responsible for this new administration.
For well-integrated services a good infrastructure is essential. This visit was therefore marked by the presentation of the Kadaster approach and expertise. On the programme were numerous technical presentations delivered not only by Kadaster but also by the department of Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment and the Ministry of Interior).
On behalf of the registrars, a presentation was delivered by Mr Ruben Roes. Deputy chief registrar in the Netherlands.

Also the Dutch approach regarding e-conveyancing and the legal issues the registrars of Kadaster have to deal with were discussed. Furthermore, the project about automated updating of the Cadastral registration was part of the presentation. Mr Roes told that he expected that on the end of 2010 about 30% of all deeds of mortgage will be registered automatically, with use of so-called style sheets. Mr Roes also expected that some 30% of the deeds of transfer could be registered semi-automatically at the end of 2010.
