MIKHAIL TEMNICHENKO, First Vice-president, Deputy Chairman of the board of St. Petersburg International Commodity Exchange CJSC

ALEKSEI NILOV, Deputy Director General of Sibexpocentre OJSC.

At the opening ceremony of the exhibitions Pavel Bezmaternykh, Acting Deputy Prime Minister of Irkutsk Region told guests and participants about priorities of our region among other territorial entities of Russia, achievements of forest industry and business programme of the exhibition:

- Irkutsk Region is a territory of priority development where seven priority investment projects of federal importance and a set of projects carried out by small and medium-sized enterprises are realized. Growth of industrial production in area is higher than the corresponding figures across Siberian federal district and even across Russia. At the exhibition not only achievements of the forest industry of the region will be demonstrated, but also discussions on many burning issues will pass, such as implementation of the pilot project of forest management identification, development of personnel potential, development of exchange trade, natural complex protection and preservation. I want to wish all participants to achieve the goals which they establish within the exhibition and also to exchange experience and find new partners.

Timur Irtuganov, Vice-president of the Union of Timber Manufacturers and Exporters of Russia, Director General of Centrelesexpo OJSC noted that now it is hard time for development of the industry:

- The year is difficult for the industry, we all understand difficult conditions in which we have to work now. Import substitution and export orientation allow us to work more effectively. Nevertheless, at the state level the projects for industry development are considered constantly — these are both further work of Institute of priority investment projects in timber processing complex and amendments to the Forestry Code. I hope that not only the complex of these measures, but also our effective work will permit the industry to move forward, not to allow stagnation and to feel more surely.

Also Yuri Logachev, President of the Union of Timber Manufacturers and Exporters of Irkutsk Region made a speech at the exhibition. He wished participants new contacts, good bargains, profits and prosperity. One more speaker at the opening ceremony Mikhail Temnichenko, First Vice-president, Vice Chairman of the board of St. Petersburg International Commodity Exchange CJSC awarded prizes to the representatives of the Government of Irkutsk Region and market participants who made the greatest contribution to development of exchange trade.

Vadim Damdinov, Deputy Director of Derevyannye Doma LLC:

 — We are constant participants of the "Wood processing industry of Siberia. Wooden house construction industry" exhibition because it is an effective platform for meetings with new customers and standing client liaison. At the exhibition we represent options of wooden houses construction and also a heater of German production and frame houses on German technology. We see a great interest of visitors to our stand therefore I have no doubts that after the exhibition many of them will become constant partners. Even now requests and preliminary orders come to our mail. Certainly, the exhibition brings great benefit to any business. Here it is possible to demonstrate the production, thereby to find a common language with future buyers. Therefore we will participate in the exhibition next year, and in short-term plan there is participation in the 'Baikal Construction Week-2016'.

Taisiya Kashina, Engineer of 1 category of the Centre of Forest Protection of Irkutsk Region:

 — Our establishment is called the Centre of Forest Protection of Irkutsk Region. At the exhibition we present the desktop of the engineer — forest pathologist, and also we tell visitors about work of our centre. Many citizens address to us concerning forest fires or unauthorized deforestation which does not fall within our competence therefore we want to tell people about our real destination. Activity of the Centre of Forest Protection of Irkutsk Region is enhancement and preservation of woods of the region which means that we carry out forest pathology monitoring and monitoring of forest regeneration. To please visitors of the exhibition, we prepared small gifts — seeds of Scots Pine with the instruction of sowing technology. Having planted such a tree a person will be able to make a small contribution to preservation of the nature not only of Irkutsk Region, but the whole Russia as well.

Aleksandr Pogosov, Director of Forest Equipment Department of Sennebogen Maschinenfabrik GMBH:

 — Our company is relatively recently in the Irkutsk market — for about one and a half years therefore we just have need in participation in the exhibition where annually there are a lot of large wood processors. The event gives an opportunity to promote the brand, get acquainted with the market and demonstrate the services. We produce equipment for logistics of large warehouses of round timber. If the company processes more than 200 thousand cubes of wood for a year, it makes sense to think of such productive equipment, as we have. In general, we are satisfied with the exhibition and already think of participation the next year.

Ruslan Anufriev, Master of BaikalBrus Company production:

 — The "Wood processing industry of Siberia. Wooden house construction industry" exhibition is a very good chance for our company to demonstrate what we are and what opportunities our company has. At the exhibition we offer options of houses building from laminated lumber of natural humidity, and also offer services for manufacture of components and house assembly on turnkey basis. I want to say that the exhibition was very effective for us, due to the large number of visitors, even I hardly had time to answer questions. I am confident that, as in the past year calls and orders will begin after the exhibition. Of course, the exhibition is needful, because Irkutsk Region has a large reserve of forest resources and such events should be held at the regional level. Here, people can learn about companies, see the products clearly, see harvesting technique in action. For example, I have seen here new tools and methods for assembly of houses, which about did not know. Therefore I recommend to specialists of industry and all interested people to attend the exhibition in all cases!

It should be reminded, that the XXIII "Wood Processing Industry of Siberia. Wooden House Construction Industry" exhibition will be held on September 13—16, 2016.

We will be glad to see you among participants and visitors of the exhibition
