The participants in the opening ceremony of the Russian group stand were Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Alexey Gordeyev, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russia to Germany Sergey Nechaev, President and CEO of Koelnmesse Gerald Bose, and other officials.  

In his welcome speech Alexey Gordeyev said that even now the Russian product line in terms of product range was fully consistent with the habits of European customers, and the Russian agricultural producers used chemical agents less than their foreign colleagues. He also reminded of Russia's plans to increase exports of agricultural products up to 45 billion US dollars by 2024.

Mr. Bose, being the organiser of ANUGA, emphasised an active participation of Russian companies in the Koelnmesse trade fairs devoted to various topics. He said that Koelnmesse welcomed the efforts of the Russian side aimed at support of Russian exports and participation of Russian companies in German trade shows. Through such measures some decrease in the number of Russian exhibitors noted at ANUGA in previous years was replaced by growth in 2019.
