The activities of the department in this area to the participants of the Congress "Hydraulic Structures and Dredging," held February 7-8 in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Moscow, said Deputy Director of the Department of Shipbuilding Industry and Marine Equipment of the Ministry of Nikolai Shablikov.

Currently, there are several programs that stimulate domestic shipbuilding. Among them is subsidizing interest rates on loans and leasing payments, ship recycling grant, special interest contracts, etc. In close cooperation with the business community, relevant ministries and departments, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia is preparing proposals for the application of these measures in the dredging equipment and vessels sector, as well as on the formation of a state program for the construction of a corresponding fleet in Russia.
