“The REC business mission will operate for all 4 days of the forum. Thirty-four Russian industrial exporters are participating in the mission, and more than 350 targeted talks with potential foreign partners will be organised for them. The Russian Export Centre has attracted importers from Italy, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, India, Brazil, Algeria, Belarus, Bulgaria, and Uzbekistan”, the press service reported.
According to representatives of the REC, due to the difficult epidemiological situation, the business mission is being conducted in a hybrid format: those exporters who can’t participate in person will have access to online discussions.
“Besides this, to make B2B and B2G contacts possible, sectoral panel sessions and exchange of contacts accompanied by translators has been organised”, REC representatives said.
“For nearly a year business contacts were almost halted due to the pandemic, numerous B2B meetings, as well as traditional exhibitions were cancelled. We have successfully moved some business missions to an online format, which has proven to be useful and efficient, but this year we see that entrepreneurs are using every single opportunity to participate in off-line events. At the ‘Innoprom 2021’ forum in Yekaterinburg, entrepreneurs from 15 countries will meet. We are ready to accompany all deals made here and to provide the necessary financial and non-financial solutions on behalf of the REC Group for the successful realisation of the planned projects”, Veronica Nikishina, the head of the REC noted.
The business mission of the Russian Export Centre at the International Industrial Exhibition Innoprom 2021 was opened by REC General Director Veronica Nikishina, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Alexey Gruzdev, and General Director of “Confindustria Russia” Alfredo Gozzi.
