On the morning of Jul. 8th, 2015, the opening ceremony of Chinese pavilion at the international industry and trade fair INNOPROM-2015, co-organized by the Ministry of Commerce of China (MOFCOM) and China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), was held at the International Exhibition Center Ekaterinburg-EXPO. Vice Premier Wang Yang attended the ceremony and announced the opening of Chinese pavilion.
As Wang Yang put it, China has been invited as the partner country of the industrial trade fair in Russia for the first time, as agreed by the high-profile bilateral meeting in May 2014. The burgeoning INNOPROM has become a new member of the big family of international conventions and exhibitions, and China’s presence at INNOPROM-2015 is truly an icing on the cake. Cherished by the Chinese government, this year’s fair will be no less a showcase for China’s latest achievements in technical manufacturing than a platform for cooperation between the two nations. On behalf of China, participating enterprises will serve as the dynamo of such cooperation and seek more business opportunities.
In his speech, Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia, lauded INNOPROM’s contributions to Sino-Russian economic and trade ties and wished it a complete success.
The opening ceremony was chaired by Zhong Shan, Chairman of the International Trade Negotiation Representative and Vice Minister of Commerce of PRC. Jiang Zelin, Deputy Secretary General of the State Council, and Jiang Zengwei, Chairman of CCPIT, attended.
After the ceremony, Wang Yang and Denis Manturov, under Jiang Zengwei’s accompaniment, paid an inspection visit to the fair. At the exhibition stands of China Railway Group Limited, Chongqing Lifan Holdings Co., Ltd., China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, China State Shipbuilding Corporation, and Heilongjiang Province, Wang Yang came up to speed on the operating status of enterprises concerned in Russia, and encouraged them to further contribute to Sino-Russian cooperation.
