The first major international forum "Russia - China" will be held on September 7-8, 2023 in Kazan, at Kazan Expo IEC, Russian Federation. Russian regions and Chinese provinces will be able to discuss topical issues on the development of cooperation. Thus, delegations from the provinces with which Tatarstan has signed interregional intergovernmental agreements are expected: Shandong, Hunan, Sichuan, Anhui, Heilongjiang, Zhejiang, Chongqing.
We will be glad to see delegations from sister cities (municipalities of Tatarstan and Chinese cities: Hangzhou, Shenzhen, Guangdong, Hebei, Chengdu, Yuhuan, Wenlin, Meishan, Deyang, Xi'an, Dongying, Lianshan, Haijiang, Liaocheng, Guangyuan, Pengzhou, Qiqiqihar, Guangzhou). Large business delegations of partners of Russian enterprises in the field of industry are expected.
On the one hand, this is a symbol of the fact that the soil (political situation and readiness for business) is fertile, there are already good examples of joint projects, but on the other hand, the potential for growth is still very large. With a positive response from the participants, the forum is planned to be held on an annual basis.
Sprouts" is a great opportunity for participants to exchange experience, expand contacts and develop cooperation between Russia and China in various fields.
The main topics of the Forum are: inter-party dialogue, investment projects, education, engineering, petrochemicals, logistics, crop production, animal husbandry, information technology, tourism and culture, youth work. A sports program with the participation of Chinese teams has been prepared. Interesting cultural program. There are master classes on Chinese, Russian and Tatar culture. The name of the forum is ROSTKI, where ROS is Russia, KI is China, and T between them is Tatarstan as a hospitable platform for effective dialogue. On the logo on one side there is a hand painted in the colors of the Russian flag, on the other hand there is a hand with the colors of the Chinese flag - both of them hold together a Tatar cauldron - a pot of earth where there are already sprouts.
The Forum will include an exhibition "Mechanical Engineering. Metalworking. Welding. Kazan"
