Business Breakfast of The Marine Instrumentation Corporation (KMP)

For the second year in a row, NEVA-International will be the organizer of this event.

The participants analyzed an approach to the KMP JSC Production Diversification Program as well as together with their colleagues discussed how to create conditions and mechanisms for supporting diversification in the shipbuilding industry.

Sports Programme

This year, for the first time, NEVA will host Billiards and Table Tennis Tournaments, as well as a Closed Billiards Club.
