Government to recover costs to the Agroprodmash participants
Dozens of Russian manufacturers of food processing equipment will take part in the forthcoming exhibition Agroprodmash 2017. They will showcase their new and promising developments for livestock, poultry and farm businesses, milk processing plants, cheese makers, producers of juices and beverages, processors of fruit and vegetables, meat, poultry and fish processing plants, etc.
As far as 2017 is an official start of the program of state support of Russian food machinery companies, it is expected that the number of Russian participants in the Agroprodmash exhibition will grow further on. And there is the reason: thanks to joint work of Russian Export Center, the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade and Rosspetsmash Association (uniting manufacturers of food, road building and farm machinery industries), now business expenses including participation in Russian international trade shows will be reimbursed. Thus, global experience in supporting participation of Russian manufacturers in international trade shows and fairs will be used in our country as well. This issue is regulated by Decree No.488 of the Russian Government as of 24 April 2017 which stipulates mechanisms to partially finance expenses connected with promotion of high tech, innovative and other products and services to overseas markets. The Agroprodmash participants will be able to get up to 80% of expenses for rent of floor space and exhibition mounting. This year more than 45 companies applied for subsidies, among them many regular participants in the trade show. They are mainly manufacturers of equipment for dairy industry, meat industry, bakery and others.
On October 11, 2017 the Agroprodmash supporting program features the conference on Development of the Russian Market of Food Processing Machinery and Equipment where manufacturers of equipment and representatives of Russian Export Center, the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, and Expocentre will discuss first experience in recovering part of costs for participation in Russian trade shows and fairs.
The 22nd edition of the Agroprodmash international exhibition for equipment, technologies, raw materials and ingredients for the food processing industry will run at Expocentre Fairgrounds from October 9 through 13, 2017.
