    Vladivostok offers second venue of “Import Substitution in Russian Shipbuilding: Ambition and Reality” roundtable

    Industrial Department of the Primorsky Territory’s Administration proposed Vladivostok as the second venue of the roundtable meeting “Import Substitution in Russian Shipbuilding: Ambition and Reality” to be involved in video conference format. The main venue will be the event hall of Admiral Makarov State University of Maritime and Inland Shipping in Saint-Petersburg.

    Many participants of Russian shipbuilding market believe that the adoption of Russian Government decree No 719 aimed at increasing the share of Russian components in shipbuilding projects at Russian shipyards for Russian customers and funding the newbuilds through state budget funds (state orders, state subsidies, etc.) as a premature step. The change in the legislation has caused discussions in different segments of the industry about the practice of using a small range of domestic ship components and has led, in some cases, to the suspension of new contracts for commercial vessels with domestic shipyards. 

    The round table slated to be held on August 29, 2019 in St. Petersburg will be hosted by IAA PortNews IAA with the support of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade. The event is to begin at 12:00, Moscow time.

    Invited to participate: Russian design organizations, classification societies, shipowners, financial institutions (including leasing companies), shipyards, Russian manufacturers of marine equipment, foreign suppliers and manufacturers of marine equipment, industry regulators (Minpromtorg, Ministry of Transport), project developers from SKO Center (Center for import substitution and local content in manufacturing of ship components), etc.

    The Roundtable Moderator is Gennady Yegorov, D.Eng.Sc, Proff., General Director, Marine Engineering Bureau.

    Sponsor of the roundtable meeting: Marine Cargo Bureau LLC.

    Terms of participation in the roundtable meeting: as a listener for free. Registration is required. It is possible to purchase a sponsorship package.
