On the implementation of program of transport engineering support for 2016

21-22 of September, 2016 as the part of the "UNITED RUSSIA" Party Project "St. Petersburg is the Sea Capital of Russia" the IX International Forum "Transport and Transit Potential" traditionally dedicated to the development of transit potential of the country's transport system starts in St. Petersburg. One of the issues of the plenary session will be the implementation of program of transport engineering support for the 2016, which will be represented by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
Program Submitted at the beginning of the year is aimed at the formation of an integrated approach to the development of transport engineering industry, taking into account trends in the development of this mechanical engineering sector. It is about the implementation of investment projects on modernization and expansion of capacities for production of large car casting and freight cars by the key companies in the sector, as well as projects for the production of transport engineering production with the participation of foreign manufacturers of railway equipment. According to the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, these measures will improve the safety of rail freight traffic, optimize the production capacities, and upgrade the train fleet.
In the first half of 2016 20 billion rubles was directed for the development of the program of transport engineering support. Experts believe that the results of state funding are evident today: in the 1st quarter of 2016 transport machine-building has demonstrated 15% growth. During the year the railway sector is planning to produce and implement about 40 thousand wagons.
