As the Partner Country at HANNOVER MESSE 2013 the Russian Federation will focus on energy, industrial automation and new materials. This was announced today by George Kalamanov, Junior Minister for Industry and Commerce for the Russian Federation, at the official signing of the Partner Country agreement in Moscow. In addition to an extensive array of products and technology at the central Russian stand in Hall 26, the Partner Country will benefit from the broad range of keynote topics featured at HANNOVER MESSE and take advantage of the opportunity to showcase the strengths of Russia as a business location and as the world’s sixth biggest economy.
