Increasing production in Russia - a realistic prospect for German mechanical engineering?

Event partner: VDMA, GEA Russia
Theme track
Russian-German industrial forum
German mechanical engineering companies are among the largest foreign investors in the Russian industry. Can we expect further growth in the presence of German manufacturers in Russia? DISCUSSION TOPICS: What factors contribute to the creation of a production company in Russia? What are the obstacles for a more active growth? State support measures - incentive or obstruction for a more active development? Is the “Russianness” of the product an important factor for commercial success? Is there a general benefit of foreign investment for the economy? Might it become profitable for German mechanical engineering companies to manufacture in Russia for export?
