Elena Suvorova, Director of the Big Industrial Week International Industrial and Technology Trade Fair and Forum:
"The Big Industrial Week International Industrial and Technology Trade Fair and Forum is the first industrial trade fair of the INNOPROM type abroad, and for the host country, Egypt, it is actually the first general industrial B2B platform in the country. Therefore, the trade fair turned out to be of big interest not only for Russian participants but also for Egyptian ones, as well as for other foreign industrial companies represented in the region. The main sectors represented by Russian participants are transport engineering, contemporary agricultural technologies, nuclear power industry, power equipment and others."
