Mr. Rakhmanov told about plans of the Russian automotive industry till 2020, declaring that the current year will undoubtedly become a revival period of the branch and its withdrawal from the crisis. The statement is confirmed by the ½ 2010 results of the research published by the Association of European Businesses in the Russian Federation. According to AEB new car sales have shown positive result for the first time since 2009.

It was promoted also by the government of the Russian Federation introducing into branch certain programs stabilizing consumer demand.

 

The press dialogue proved to be extremely productive on the whole. The active professional networking involved a number of issues covering the results of the Russian automotive industry work during the first half of the year. And it goes without saying that the journalists wished to receive more information related to premiers and "surprises" from the organizers. The representatives of exhibitors willingly answered all questions.
