ZHUKOVSKY, Moscow region, July 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The organizers of the second international forum, Technologies in Machine Building 2012, say the forum has been a success.
“There is no doubt this forum is successful by the number of exhibitors and events and by its business program,” an organizing committee representative told Itar-Tass in Zhukovsky, Moscow region, on Sunday. Twenty roundtables were held within five days, and about 200 people made their reports. Over 3,000 specialists from 103 countries took part in the roundtables.
The most significant event was the conference, “The Role of the Defense Sector in the Modernization of the Country and the Society”, chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin. The plenary meeting dedicated to the introduction of high technologies in machine building also caused a keen interest of the participants, the source said.
He declined to name the precise value of the deals concluded at the forum in Zhukovsky. “Most of the agreements and contracts were framework documents,” he said, singling out the set of nine agreements signed by the Rostekhnologii State Corporation – six international and three domestic. “These include Russian Helicopters’ deal with French Turbomeca on the maintenance and repairs of engines for Kamov Ka-226T and Ka-26 helicopters, the deliveries of AvtoVAZ cars to Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia and the Irkut deal with Aviacapital-Service with regard to the contract on the supply of 35 MS-21 passenger jets,” he said.
The Federal Military-Technical Cooperation Service held over 100 meetings and negotiations with official delegations of the defense ministries and industrial companies from 28 states. “They discussed the fulfillment of earlier contracts and mapped out plans for the future,” the sourced said.
Rogozin described the Zhukovsky forum as a recognized business and exhibition floor. “The forum Technologies in Machine Building not only took residence in Zhukovsky but also gained authority and recognition,” Rogozin said.
The organizing committee added that a decision on the forum’s future had been made: it will become a biannual event held on the airfield of the Gromov Flight Research Institute.
