Greetings on INNOPROM-2018 International Industrial Trade Fair opening

July 8, 2018

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to the participants, organizers and guests of the 9th INNOPROM-2018 International Industrial Trade Fair.

The message reads, in part:

“The tradition of holding your forum in Yekaterinburg is highly symbolic, since this is one of Russia’s leading industrial, research and educational centres with extensive experience in hosting large-scale events of this kind.

Every year INNOPROM brings together more and more participants, attracting corporate executives, government officials and researchers from across the world. The forum has established itself as an expert platform for discussing a wide range of matters related to promoting international cooperation, business ties, and presenting Russian and foreign innovations. In today’s world, social development is determined largely by high technology, which has the potential of driving economic growth and improving quality of life. For this reason, I believe that Digital Manufacturing as the forum’s main theme this year is a highly relevant and important topic.

I strongly believe that this trade fair will be a success and will facilitate international cooperation, enhancing the competitiveness of Russian products, and launching new and promising undertakings.”

INNOPROM is an annual trade fair held in Yekaterinburg since 2010. This year, delegations from 95 countries and 59 Russian regions, as well as more than 600 companies from 20 countries are to take part in the event.
