UrBC, Chelyabinsk, June 24, 2015. On June 19, Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant/ChTPZ BOD member Alexander Filatov made his report on government support measures in the non-energy export sector at a panel discussion at Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum, ChTPZ Group’s press service reports.

Expanding its export segment is currently one of the Group’s top priorities. The company intends to double its export of steel pipes within five years, up to 500,000,000 kg a year by 2019. The Group’s O &G equipment maintenance division, Rimera, plans to raise its export sales by 5% to 10% a year.

To achieve these goals, the company will have to deal with a number of problems shared by all hi tech product manufacturers, such as protection of intellectual property rights, adjusting a product to a specific market’s regulations, finding a dealer company and training their personnel, and ensuring after-sale services.

Filatov said these problems could be solved through long-term and competitive financing schemes and the use of trading firms which could ensure the Russian producers’ factual presence on foreign markets, deal with incoming and outgoing emails and letters, translation and interpreting, negotiations, and logistics, and coordinate the Russian companies’ actions so as to reduce mutual competition.
