EEC raises issues of reducing import dependence in machine tool industry

This was stated by Nikolai Rogozhnik, Deputy Director of the Industrial Policy Department of the Eurasian Economic Commission, within two major international industry exhibition events –Metal-Expo 2023 and Mitex 2023.

"Today our countries face an important challenge to attract research associations to participate in the work of the Eurasian technology platforms. This is required to consolidate the EAEU States' scientific potential on the way to achieving technological sovereignty," Nikolai Rogozhnik noted.

On the sidelines of the events, representatives of the Commission's Industrial Unit held a number of business meetings and consultations with representatives of industry and research circles, discussing with them current and important issues for developing the industries. The parties identified priority areas for developing cooperative interaction and deepening integration processes in the machine building industry within the EAEU.

During his participation in the round table discussions "Examples and Opportunities for Successful Import Substitution", the session "Full Life Cycle Effects - New Priority in Creating Strategic Infrastructure" and the conference "Electric Tools and Labour Saving Tools Market. State and Prospects" Nikolai Rogozhnik raised the issues of reducing the level of import dependence for a number of finished products, component base and machines for their manufacture. The EEC representative paid special attention to discussing the issues of developing integration interaction in the design and research segment. 

On the sidelines of the Forum, the Commission delegation visited the expositions related to the manufacture of construction and assembly tools and metalworking equipment, as well as scientific, technical and technological advances in this field.

For reference

The Moscow International Exhibition MITEX is the central regional event that brings together manufacturers, suppliers and consumers of tools from both the EAEU and CIS countries.

The International Industrial Exhibition Metal-Expo is one of the central events in demonstrating technical achievements in the manufacture of state-of-the-art equipment for metalworking.

In total, the events were attended by more than 1 ths companies from different countries.
