August 26, 2022
From August 23 to 26, Novosibirsk hosted a major technological event — the IX International Technological Development Forum Technoprom-2022, organized with the support of the government of the Novosibirsk Region. The main topic of the Forum this year was „Technological Sovereignty and Sustainable Development of Russia“.
The Technoprom-2022 was attended by Dmitry Chernyshenko, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, Andrey Travnikov, Governor of the Novosibirsk Region, Valery Falkov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of Russia.
The Director of the UNIDO CIIC took part in the Panel session “International scientific, technological and entrepreneurial cooperation in the new geopolitical conditions”.
In his speech, Sergey Anatolyevich spoke about the dynamics of FDI from both Russia and China as part of the One Belt, One Path Initiative and noted the importance of Russia’s presence in the Central Asian region and cooperation in the BRICS+ format.
“Cooperation within the BRICS+ in the current implementations can, on the one hand, be extremely promising for Russia, and on the other hand, have a certain conflict of interests in the region between Russia and China. However, with China’s booming postpandemic industry, it is important for us to maintain a certain presence in the region,” he said.
In total, according to the organizers, about 800 speakers representing more than 60 regions of the Russian Federation took part in Technoprom-2022. More than 70 agreements were signed at the forum sites.
