International industrial exhibition "Innoprom": first results

On July 8, the International Industrial Exhibition “Innoprom” opened in Yekaterinburg. It has been held annually since 2010. In the first days of the exhibition, productive meetings have already taken place aimed at establishing cooperation between various countries and Russian regions. The Russian Timber Association also takes part in this event.

Andrey Goncharov, First Vice-President of the Russian Timber Association: “Within the framework of Innoprom, the Russian Timber Association held a number of meetings with trade representatives from different countries. The focus of the discussion is attracting investment in the development of the Russian timber industry and expanding the geography of exports of forestry products.”

The program of this large-scale event pays significant attention to the development of international cooperation in the field of technology, trade and industry. Thus, during the first days of the Innoprom exhibition:

  • Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin got acquainted with industrial products and developments of Russian companies. In particular, he was presented with a joint project with BELAZ to create a hydrogen dump truck (now undergoing field tests) and an industrial robotic line for processing parts with robots from domestic manufacturers.
  • Gazprombank announced plans to open its own office in China by the end of the year - this was announced by the first vice-president of the credit organization Oleg Melnikov. Such a branch will allow you to conduct international currency payments.
  • Russia and the United Arab Emirates have signed a number of agreements expanding industrial cooperation. Today, the UAE is the largest partner of the Russian Federation in the Arab world, so business is showing special interest in the special economic zones of the emirate. Cooperation has already been established in the Khalifa Economic Zone in Abu Dhabi. UAE representatives also became interested in Russian developments in the field of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, Internet of things, speech recognition and facial identification. In addition, our countries cooperate in the field of standardization and certification.

The exhibition will last two more days - July 10 and 11. You can register as a participant or visitor on the Innoprom website.
