The Republic of Bashkortostan will hold the Week of petrochemicals in the region in a new format. The Russian oil, gas and petrochemical forum will be held in Ufa on May, 24-27 2016. It will bring together two key region industry events on one platform: the international forum “Bolshaya khimiya” and the XVII international exhibition “Gas. Oil. Technology 2016”.
It is expected that within four days over 10 thousand people from more than 30 regions of Russia and foreign countries will attend the claimed events.
The forum is organized by the Government of the Republic of Bashkortostan, the Ministry of industry and innovative policy of the Republic Bashkortostan and the Chamber of commerce and industry of the Republic of Bashkortostan. The forum is supported by the Russian Ministry of energy, the Ministry of industry and trade of the Russian Federation.
As Dmitry Sharonov, the Chairman of the Organizing committee on preparation and holding of the Russian petrochemical forum, the Deputy Prime Minister of the government of the Republic of Bashkortostan, notes, the new format will make the forum even more productive.
Last year, “Bolshaya khimiya” was held on the eve of the BRICS and SCO summits and was included in the official program of Russia's chairmanship in the SCO. The speakers of the forum were Arkady Dvorkovich, the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, Mikhail Babich, the Plenipotentiary of the President of Russia in the Volga Federal district, Rustem Khamitov, the Head of Bashkortostan, Rustam Minnikhanov, the acting President of Tatarstan, Kirill Molodtsov, the Deputy Minister of energy, and Sergey Tsyb, the Deputy Minister of industry and trade.
Provisions of the final resolution of “Bolshaya khimiya” were discussed in July last year at the meeting on priority investment projects in the petrochemical industry and import substitution under the guidance of the Chairman of the government of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev, as well as in September 2015 during the session of the Presidium of the Council on economy modernization and innovative development of Russia under the President of the Russian Federation.
