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

Event partner: VDMA, GEA Russia
Theme track
Russian-German industrial forum
11 July
12:00 - 14:00
Pavilion 4, HALL 5
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?
