In St. Petersburg Was The Second International Forum Of Component Manufacturers

 The main specialization of the forum, organized by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, was oil and gas and investment machine building. The event was held on October 4, 2017 in the framework of the 7th St. Petersburg International Gas Forum.

The first international forum of component manufacturers was held in July 2017 at the fields of the INNOPROM exhibition in Yekaterinburg. Its main industry theme was machine tool construction. Within the framework of the forum, which gathered about 200 participants, more than 150 meetings in the "B2B" format were held.

Taking into account the interest shown by the market participants in such events, it was decided to continue the practice of holding them at various venues and within different sectors. The second forum, held this time in St. Petersburg, specialized primarily in the production of components in the oil and gas sector.

It was attended by representatives of major customer companies, equipment manufacturers and component suppliers, including Gazprom, HMS Group, Schlumberger, United Engine Building Corporation, Gazprom Automation, United Machine Buildings and other key oil and gas market participants and investment engineering.      

"Holding such forums is a new format of communication between customers and suppliers, manufacturers and consumers of industrial products. Often, large domestic or foreign players say that it is impossible to increase the value added or fulfill the requirements for localization, explaining this by the lack of Russian suppliers of proper qualifications. The Forum of Component Manufacturers helps to solve this problem by providing manufacturers of components and the largest customers with a single platform for communication , "said Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Vasily Osmakov in his welcoming speech to the event participants .

He also spoke about new tools to support the production of domestic components. In particular, the special program "Components" of the Industrial Development Fund. Its participants can be provided with loans for up to 5 years to organize or upgrade the production of components at an unprecedented rate of 1% in the first three years and 5% for the remaining two years.

Within the framework of the St. Petersburg International Gas Forum Vasily Osmakov also took part in the meeting on technological development of PJSC Gazprom and got acquainted with the advanced developments of Russian companies represented at the exhibition "Import substitution in the gas industry".
