TO PARTICIPANTS AND VISITORS OF THE
MOSCOW INTERNATIONAL
AUTOMOBILE SALON (МIAS) 2016

Dear friends,

The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) keeps a vigilant watch over the development of the automotive industry in Russia. We note with satisfaction that, in spite of the current difficulties, OEMs still find it possible to exhibit their current and future products, and this shows their confidence in a recovery of the Russian automobile market that we all expect in the short to medium term.

The history of global automobile manufacturing clearly shows that the development of the automotive industry has always experienced cycles in all the regions; nevertheless, the world motor vehicle production grows on average by 1 to 1.5 million units each year, and it reached 91.5 million vehicles in 2015.

We note that the Russian auto industry has always been among the first 15 leading automobile nations.

May I wish the automotive industry of Russia a good and quick recovery, and I wish all manufacturers success and good luck in this complex auto business.

Yves van der Straaten,
OICA Secretary General

TO PARTICIPANTS AND VISITORS OF THE
MOSCOW INTERNATIONAL
AUTOMOBILE SALON (
МIAS) 2016

A car in Russia is more than just a car. It is a means of luxury and a vehicle, and means of labor. For the last 15 years the fleet of vehicles of the country has grown more than twice and consists today of 47 million only passenger cars and continues to grow despite crises, traffic jams and bad roads. Today 307 cars are the share of 1000 residents of the country, and it means that practically each Russian family has at least one car.

Therefore interest of all Russians is so huge to everything new released from our enterprises and to what enterprises demonstrate at motor shows. This year, unfortunately, we will hardly be able to satisfy all requests of the salon guests. 2014 and 2015 were not the best for the automotive industry – continues decrease in sales together with decline of vehicles production. In 2016 situation has improved a little but remains still steadily grave. At the same time automobile companies which have relied on the high capacity of the Russian automobile market have found an opportunity and participate in the salon. We are sincerely grateful to them for it. I hope that their expositions will be appreciated both by consumers of automotive vehicles and by mass media.

We need today and in future well trained and highly qualified personnel. For this reason a part of the salon’s exposition is allocated to higher education institutions of the country and on September 1 the next edition of Educational Day will be held within the frames of the salon.

12 days of the salon is just a moment in the industry’s activities but this moment will allow correcting companies’ development programs including for the long-term period.

I wish to participants, organizers and guests of the Moscow International Automobile Salon to overcome the crisis successfully, to expand business, to increase wellbeing, and good luck will help you in it.

Chairman, Association of Russian Automakers NP
Director General KAMAZ PTC

TO PARTICIPANTS AND VISITORS OF THE
MOSCOW INTERNATIONAL
AUTOMOBILE SALON (МIAS) 2016

Let me welcome participants and organizers of the 6th Moscow International Automobile Salon and the 12th exhibition of automotive components, garage equipment and accessories InterAuto on behalf of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.

MIAS for the sixth time already unites the leading world automotive companies on the sight which demonstrate perspective models, technologies and developments.

The government of the Russian Federation actively supports national automotive industry. In 2016 the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia implements an unprecedented package of measures aiming to support the industry. In its basis – programs of demand stimulation which create to potential buyers the most favorable conditions for a new car purchase.

New models are regularly produced by both originally national producers and by global conglomerates which have constructed modern productions in Russia. They direct their efforts to localization of the component base, improvement of products quality, development of mechanisms of sales for the sake of preserving their positions in the conditions of severe competition.

On behalf of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation I would like to express gratitude to the organizers of MIAS for their contribution to the development of the automobile industry potential. I wish all participants and guests success, wellbeing and good luck.

TO PARTICIPANTS AND ORGANIZERS OF THE
EDUCATIONAL DAY
WITHIN THE FRAMES OF MIAS 2016

Let me welcome participants and organizers of the Moscow International Automobile Salon 2016 Educational Day on behalf of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation!

The last years have been difficult for the national automotive industry. The situation in the market stimulates the Russian companies to active development of sales gear, carrying out profound work with suppliers in localization of components base and in development of products quality improvement. Implementation of these actions is impossible without modern specialists possessing actual competence - economists, managers, designers, engineers and skilled workers.

The Educational Day of the Moscow International Automobile Salon is the major event of professional orientation for the automotive industry. Companies of the automotive market, profile educational organizations of various levels and representatives of younger generation willing to obtain good promotion in automotive business meet this day on the same platform. Participation in the event will provide an opportunity to young people to gain a reliable insight about opportunities of professional development in the automotive industry and to producers to lay the foundation of the personnel reserve for the industry.

I would like to express gratitude to the organizers of the Moscow International Automobile Salon 2016 Educational Day for their contribution to the development of the automotive industry potential, and I wish all participants success in professional self-determination and further career development!

Alexander Morozov,
Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation

Moreover a number of unforgettable entertaining events including spectacular drift shows, test drives and many other things have been prepared for the guests of the motor show!

We have made every effort for you to explore all the best, new and interesting available in the market today and to get a number of positive emotions.

I am confident that the Moscow Autosalon will become a significant event in this year calendar of events!

The automobile topic will be harmoniously complemented by InterAuto exhibition of automotive industry. The trade fair will display the latest developments of the automotive components industry. The project makes a powerful contribution to the development of the automotive industry of the country directing it toward further development. A highly topical and dense business program covering the most urgent issues will traditionally become the main attraction for the specialists.

Taking the opportunity I would like to express gratitude to exhibitors, partners, sponsors and companies who have rendered support to the Moscow Autosalon. Due to unstable economic situation in the Russian market, some car makers failed to participate in the exhibition this year. However we continue to remain good friends and we are looking forward with optimism and would be glad to meet at MIAS 2018.
