    HALL 4

     Russia is currently focusing efforts on developing domestic industries and industrializing the country with high-value added production, aiming to depart from a heavy dependence on natural resources. Under such circumstances, the government is proactively conducting activities such as fostering SMEs, which constitute the base of Russian industry, and introduction of foreign technology. It is expected that new business chances for Japanese companies will be created as a result. Meanwhile, Japanese companies still have pointed out some challenges in the business environments such as “volatility of exchange rates,” “complex procedures for customs clearance” and “difficulty in local procurement of materials and parts.” There is not adequate information reaching Japanese companies on all of the opportunities and advantages available in doing business in Russia. Today, based on “a cooperation plan with eight points” made between the leaders of both countries at the summit meeting, there are various kinds of economic exchange occurring between Russia and Japan. Fundamental expansion of exchange and cooperation between SMEs and promoting industrial diversification and productivity in Russia are important themes of the cooperation, which fall under this plan. DISCUSSION TOPICS: In this session we are taking full advantage of the opportunity provided by this international trade fair “Innoprom,” in which many Russian and Japanese firms have gathered with mutual interest, by engaging in lively discussion on the possibility of collaboration between SMEs from Russia and Japan, primarily in technology.

    HALL 2

    The digital era will bring major changes in personnel structure of industrial enterprises. Some professions will become obsolete, and new ones will emerge. Education has to adapt to the changes. Besides, it is necessary to consider social risks, since digitalization of production may result in a dramatic decrease in the number of employees in some areas of production. DISCUSSION TOPICS: digital production facility: what will it be like? New generation - new requirements; how will personnel requirements change? What professions will become obsolete? What new professions will emerge? What new competencies will all employees need in the digital era regardless of their area of expertise? Solutions to the problem of redundant workforce and ways for resolving social problems in monotowns; what changes will occur in new generation's expectations of its employers? How should higher education change? Are institutions of higher learning ready for it? What kind of assistance do they need?
