The importance of this event is confirmed in a memorandum signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. 
“We have discussed in detail the key aspects of Russian-Greek cooperation and important international and regional issues. Particular attention was paid to the development of cooperation in business and trade,” Putin said after the talks.
This year, the exhibition is certain to amaze everyone with its sheer scale, intense business program, and of course – with the staging of the Russian pavilion, where the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation will be the key event organizer.
According to Denis Manturov, RF Minister of Industry and Trade, “Companies are obviously interested in mutual cooperation. Concerted efforts will help boost cooperation not only in trade and the power industry, but also in industrial and investment projects. The results we achieve will make it possible to attain a fundamentally-new level of bilateral cooperation, as well as to specify the focus and set of tools to be applied.
A special role in this endeavor must be played by the Joint Russian-Greek Commission on Economic, Industrial, Scientific and Technical Cooperation and the Russian-Greek Business Council for Cooperation and Investment.”
 
The Russian manufacturers will showcase the impressive scale of the country's achievements in such areas as power generation, mechanical engineering, agriculture, construction, transport, trade and logistics. Constituent entities of Russia will have the unique opportunity to demonstrate the success of regional enterprises in the latest high-tech solutions. The key idea of the exhibition is to promote Russian-made products, technology and services on the foreign markets and to attract investments to the industrial sector of the economy.
