GORKI, February 2. /TASS/. Foreign-made machinery will be prohibited from taking part in federal and municipal tenders, said Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Monday as he signed the special regulations document.
"I signed a special document, it has restriction regulations on the admission of certain types of foreign-made machinery to federal and municipal auctions," Medvedev said.
In turn, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said that last summer, a similar document was signed. "In the last several months, a document on banning access to state and municipal tenders was finalized," he said.
Dvorkovich explained that mostly the document has to do with construction technology, technology that is used in mining for natural resources, as well as for municipal engineering vehicles. The ban makes exceptions for machinery made in the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union. "The machinery from EEU countries will be delivered just as Russian-made vehicles," Dvorkovich said.
The legislature takes immediate effect upon signing. "We hope that this will give an additional impulse to the import replacement in this area," he said.
