The strength and power of Russia can grow in agriculture! In any case, I want to believe in it after visiting the international specialized exhibition of agricultural equipment "Agrosalon 2014". 70 square meters 000 samples of the latest machinery and equipment were presented here, each of which is a real embodiment of technological progress, capable of ensuring food security of both a single state and the whole world.
About the exhibition
This year Agrosalon celebrated its first anniversary - the exhibition was held for the fifth time. Naturally, this forum has surpassed all previous ones in scope and scope.
Discussions, seminars, conferences.
After business meetings at the stands, guests were able to attend seminars and round tables with the participation of leading domestic and foreign experts. The most lively disputes were caused by issues of enterprise development, new technologies, ways to increase profitability and problems of companies' survival in conditions of fierce competition, aggravated by sanctions imposed by Western countries.
As part of the business program, on the first day of the exhibition, the Council of AKKOR (Association of Peasant (Farming) Farms and Agricultural Cooperatives of Russia) was held, at which issues of the development of the farming sector were raised
and improving government support measures in the context of the food embargo.
In parallel with this, a seminar-meeting was held on the topic “Results of work in 2014 and plans for leasing agricultural machinery of Russian production in 2015”, the speakers of which were President of the Association Rosagromash Konstantin Babkin and deputy general director of Rosagroleasing OJSC Natalya Zudina.
The second day of the exhibition was opened by the presentation of the Italian National Federation of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers FederUnacoma together with the Trade Exchange Development Department of the Italian Embassy (ICHE).
At the gala evening in honor of the end of the exhibition, members of the exhibition committee presented awards to the winners of the “Agrosalon Innovation Competition”. 61 developments in the field of agricultural machinery were presented in the nomination, but only 19 were awarded. An authoritative international jury awarded four gold and 15 silver medals to the most effective and advanced models of agricultural machinery.
The results of the Agro-Generation Competition of innovative student works were summed up, which was attended by students of agricultural universities from all over Russia: three winners received valuable prizes.
Agrosalon aroused great interest among government officials. On the last day of the exhibition, she was visited by the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov. Having examined the exposition, he noted the importance of maintaining state support for agricultural producers: “We expect that the Ministry of Agriculture will keep those subsidies, the support that has worked for 1,5 years very effectively. We will try to come to an agreement to extend this measure in subsequent years. ”- he remarked.
In addition, deputies of the Communist Party and “United Russia” factions came to look at the achievements of agricultural machinery, including the Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov, Chairman of the State Duma Committee of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on Economic Policy, Innovative Development and Entrepreneurship Igor Rudensky, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on industry Sergei Sobko and many others.
At the end of the Agrosalon, specialists emphasized the special contribution of the project to the development of the agro-industrial sector of Russia, and also appreciated the opportunity to discuss current issues and learn about the latest innovations from around the world.
By the way, the preparation of the next achievements of agricultural equipment manufacturers in stock is only two years. Next time, Agrosalon will welcome guests from October 4 to 7, 2016.
