Chief Operating Officer of the MP Evgeny Dorofeev took part in the Russian Automotive Forum 2019
On March 19-20, 2019, the 22nd Russian Automotive Forum (Russian Automotive Forum, RAF 2019) was held in Moscow, dedicated to the tasks, trends and prospects of the automotive industry in Russia.
Representatives of leading domestic and foreign automakers, as well as companies-suppliers of products for conveyors of automobile plants (Tier 1 and Tier 2) arrived at the largest event in the country in the field of automotive industry and production of automotive components.
MP was represented at the Forum by Executive Director Evgeny Dorofeev, who made a report "Export potential: successes, challenges, plans".
"As part of RAF 2019, industry experts shared their forecasts. According to their estimates, this year it is expected a slight decline in sales of new cars and light commercial vehicles, associated with a decrease in real incomes and currency fluctuations. At the same time, increasing competition forces automakers to continue active work on deepening localization. Therefore, companies that expand the range of products and are able in a short time to meet the specific needs of partners will have the best opportunities for growth.
They also discussed measures to support export-oriented enterprises of the automotive industry, and our Company shared its unique experience in the development of export sales."
The forum allowed MP to once again declare itself as a reliable manufacturer of automotive components and accessories, to maintain business relations with existing partners and to find new ones ready for fruitful cooperation.
