Government of the region, Ulyanovsk Region Development Corporation and National Engineering Corporation sealed partnership at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum on 6 June.

The document on regional cooperation was signed by Governor Sergey Morozov and Alexey Troshin, CEO of AO "NEC". The agreement assumes assistance in development of social and economic spheres including hi-tech manufacturing.

A similar document was signed with Ulyanovsk Region Development Corporation. The document includes joint activities that aim to expand institutes and mechanisms of technological development. This also includes improvement of special investment sites of the Ulyanovsk region: industrial parks, the port special economic zone, territories of advanced social and economic development, and others. The parties agreed to promote development of residents' facilities at investment platforms, as well as their innovative activities. It is also planned to create favorable conditions for promotion of investment projects.

Alexey Troshin, CEO of National Engineering Corporation, stressed importance of the collaboration with Ulyanovsk Region Development Corporation. “The team of AO "NEC" has repeatedly started development of programmes for complex technological development of certain regions. This is a very challenging task - to bring together separate enterprises that are located in the same place but manufacture absolutely different products to create a network of interconnected technological processes and new supply chains, as well as to identify technology priorities which should be improved for development of the regional industry. We were able to implement such large-scale projects when we simultaneously launched a research center and a production facility for the newest technological sphere; this way we have technically created a new industry specialization. Today, with improvement of the company's digital competences, we can offer alternatives to expensive technology solutions, as well as introduce more flexible software or analytical tools. That is why collaboration with Ulyanovsk Region Development Corporation and Government of the Ulyanovsk region provides us with a wide range of opportunities”, - Alexey Troshin noted.
