On September 5, OPORA RUSSIA held a joint meeting with the delegation of the China Chamber of Commerce on the export and import of technical and electronic products. For the Russian economy and small businesses, this is a priority area, the development of which is extremely important, including jointly with Chinese partners. The Russian Forest Association was represented at the event by its first vice-president Andrey Goncharov, who also heads the OPORA RUSSIA Commission for the forest complex.

The event was attended by the head of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce Sheng Guo Fei, manufacturers from various fields: automotive, containers for various purposes, energy, petrochemical equipment, household appliances, as well as representatives of logistics companies and other business sectors.

Alexander Kalinin, President of OPORA RUSSIA: “We see a steady interest in strengthening the relationship between Russian and Chinese companies in the industry, and we are talking about both the export and import of products, and the creation of joint ventures. It is these industry meetings that most effectively help to find the right contacts and conduct substantive b2b communication”.

Following the visit, the meeting participants noted mutual interest in cooperation, and entrepreneurs from different regions expressed their readiness to work with Chinese colleagues.

Andrey Goncharov, First Vice President of the Russian Forest Association: “Now one of the technological problems of the forest complex is the supply of foreign machinery and equipment. There are all the prerequisites for developing mechanical engineering and machine tool building for the forest industry in our country, but engineering will take time. Therefore, we agreed with our colleagues from the Chinese Chamber of Commerce to work out the issue of finding alternative Chinese-made facilities that are similar in performance to European ones”.

The event was held in anticipation of a big business mission to China, which will take place in a few weeks. Within its framework, representatives of OPORA RUSSIA will hold business meetings and visit various enterprises that will help entrepreneurs from various industries understand the market and opportunities in China, start or strengthen cooperation with it.
