"It's the first time we've ever had a UK pavilion here. It seems to be very good. It's the one show in Russia that we always come to. We get the right sort of visitors come through here. We are hoping that we get a few people coming over the next few days."
Klaus-Peter Kuhnmunch, Manager of General Affairs, VDW – the German Machine Tool Builders' Association
"Russia is a very important and huge market for us. We are very proud that so many companies are here at this year's Metalloobrabotka. Of course we hope that all of our companies, which mostly are our members, make good business Russia."
Massimo Carboniero, President, UCIMU – the Italian Machine Tools, Robots and Manufacturers' Association
"We are very glad to be here today at this very important exhibition – Metalloobrabotka. For us the Russian market is a very important market. Russia is the third country for Italian machine tool manufacturers to export products. I have a very good forecast for this market because I know that in this moment the Russian market needs new machines, new technology."
