Machine Building Market Trends in Russia (first half of 2017)


The AEB Machine Building & Engineering Committee held today its traditional Round Table “Machine Building Market Trends in Russia (first half of 2017)”. It was chaired by Philippe Pegorier, the member of the AEB Board and the Committee Chairman.

The complete and rather exhausting overview of the Machine Building sector was presented by Alexander Bezborodov, BEITEN BURKHARDT. 

The complex and multicolor picture of the Machine  Building market (Construction Equipment, Rolling Stock production, Commercial Transport) was developed in the presentations by Andrey Komov, Chairman of the AEB Construction Committee), Olga Surikova (ALSTOM Transport), Alexander Cherevaty (DAIMLER KAMAZ RUS). 

A number of important topics was raised: the often difficult dialogue with the authorities when business is not sufficiently consulted and informed about forthcoming changes; the need of a predictable amount of commands for planning the investments and localizing the production; the lack of qualified specialists – the latter problem was underlined by Igor Giske who presented the Chuvash Regional Section of the Russian Engineering Union. 

The modern technologies were in the center of GE presentation (Alexey Borev) which concluded the Round Table.
