First Deputy Minister of Industry and trade of the Russian Federation
INNOMED in Penza city is one of the key events that we will actively support and develop in the future, involving an increasing number of regions and specialists in this field in this process. It is a unique platform that brings together researchers, medical device manufacturers and doctors who can directly discuss the main issues. It is important for us to raise at the regional level the most important tasks facing the Russian industry as a whole, and in this case - facing the manufacturers of medical products and medicines.

We are faced with a difficult task which is to increase repeatedly the export of non-raw materials products.

INNOMED is the platform where we share experience, enrich ourselves intellectually, strengthen unity and establish partnership in the medical industry.

The atmosphere of the Forum is very conducive to business communication, to creating new contacts. The exhibition presents a large number of developments. I was in Penza 3 years ago, and, of course, during this time there have been very big changes. [...] Indeed, the Center for Preclinical Studies is a very popular and necessary service in Russia. There are not so many places in our country where it is possible to conduct preclinical studies on large animals at a professional level.

Participation in the INNOMED-2013 Forum has a strategic character. Our main task as a financial institution is to promote innovative developments and support promising projects and undertakings, especially in the Penza region. Financing of the regional business working in the field of innovations will allow many enterprises to enter the Federal and international markets. This, therefore, will contribute to the improvement of the socio-economic situation of the region, which, of course, will have a positive impact on the general standard of living of the population in the region.
