A growth Region in Focus

Hall 13

German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder will be joined by Russian President Vladimir Putin in opening HANNOVER FAIR 2005 (on 10 April). On the following day (April 11), these two political leaders will also jointly open the Partner Country Russia presentation in Hall 13 and the German-Russian Business Symposium in the on-site Convention Center.

The Russian Federation will enrich this year's HANNOVER FAIR with an extensive economic, political and cultural presentation. The Russian economy is on track for increased growth and prosperity. No other country in the world has such extensive natural resources at its disposal.

The goal of the Russian presentation is to publicize the country's economic and technical strengths.

At the Russian Pavilion in Hall 13, the nation with the strongest economic growth worldwide is presenting its technological expertise and innovative products for a wide range of industrial fields on 6,600 square meters of floorspace. These "Partner Country" displays will be augmented by the Russian Industrial Forum, featuring a rich program of daily lectures and panel debates.

More than 6,000 exhibitors from 60 countries will be taking part in HANNOVER FAIR 2005, which rates as one of the most important foreign trade events of the year for the Russian Federation.

The significance attached by the Russian government to this involvement is underlined by the two-day visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Hannover.
