The President of United Shipbuilding Corporation JSC, Aleksei Rakhmanov, greeted his colleagues and recalled that this year the shipbuilders finally had their own professional holiday, the Day of Shipbuilders (29 June). “It is gratifying that there are many foreign guests at the NEVA exhibition.

Minister-President of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Manuela Schwesig (Germany), greeted the participants of the 14th exhibition, the largest maritime exhibition in Russia and recalled the closeness of northeast Germany, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region. “We are strong in the marine industry, we have modern wharfs, ports, logistics and tourism.

The NEVA exhibition also promotes the convention and exhibition sphere, thanks to it ExpoForum was built. Even now it fills two pavilions of the complex completely.” He was especially grateful to the Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Unified Shipbuilding Corporation and Government of St. Petersburg for supporting the event.
