The Volume Of Support For Machine Builders Of The Mining Complex Will Exceed 2.6 Billion Rubles

 On November 8, 2017, the third National Mining Forum took place in Moscow. Vasily Osmakov,deputy head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, took part in the plenary session on "The Fourth Technological Revolution: Strategies and Prospects of Industrial Partnership in the Mineral and Raw Materials Sphere" .

About 300 representatives of mining business, education, science, heads of federal and regional authorities became participants of the forum. Within the framework of the event organized in the building of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, exhibition expositions of Russian companies, research and design organizations working in the mining complex were also presented.

The forum discussed the key directions of the development of the national mining complex, the issues of attracting investments and improving the sectoral legislation, stimulating mechanisms for the effective use of technogenic deposits and the implementation of projects for the processing of mineral raw materials.    

Vasily Osmakov said in his speech about the implementation of a set of measures of state support for domestic heavy engineering, including mining enterprises. 

The Deputy Minister noted that at present the Ministry is updating the Strategy for the Development of Heavy Machinery until 2030, the main objective of which is to ensure the technological sovereignty of the industry, increase the share of Russian producers in the domestic and foreign markets. After agreeing with colleagues from other departments, with the participation of industry associations and enterprises, the document will be sent for approval to the Government of the Russian Federation.

In addition, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia has developed and plans to approve the Strategy for the Development of Exports of Heavy Machinery Products before the end of this year.

According to the results of 2016-2017, the total state support of machine-building enterprises of the mining complex will exceed 2.6 billion rubles. Priority is given first of all to those projects that are focused on import substitution, development of international cooperation, development and launch of new competitive domestic equipment. Key support tools for the industry are subsidies for R & D, production and marketing of pilot shipments of products, concessional loans from the Industrial Development Fund

informed the forum participants Vasily Osmakov.

Only in the framework of subsidizing the implementation of pilot batches of means of production, the volume of support in 2017 for machine builders in the mining segment is 789 million rubles. Vasily Osmakov invited the mining complex companies to participate in the new, fifth selection of applications for grants, which will be held from 10 to 15 November 2017. 

The deputy minister added that at the moment the project proposal on development of production of industrial equipment for transition to the principles of the best available technologies (BAT) is being finalized.

The main objective of the project is to create conditions for the development of its own database of suppliers of equipment and technologies that comply with BAT principles. This will reduce in the coming years the share of imports in the branches of innovative machine building from 55% to 49%

said Vasily Osmakov.

All the actual instruments of state support will be presented to market participants and in April next year as part of the first national exhibition "GORPROMEXPO-2018". The organizers of the event, dedicated to advanced achievements in the Russian and world mining industry, will be the Minpromtorg and the non-commercial partnership "Miners of Russia".
