Young Engineers Presented their Reports at ONHP Conference

Mr. Vyacheslav SINYUGIN, First Deputy of the Chairman of the Government of Omsk Region, and Mr. Igor M. ZUGA, Member of the Council of Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation declared salutatory speech to the conference participants.


- Omsk region provides profound engineering education; however there is still room for improvement. When participating in such conferences, you are contributing significantly to generating and shaping of new corps of Engineers in contemporary Russia. The knowledge gained will open new horizons for Young Professionals career growth. Therefore, I wish you to demonstrate your knowledge and what is especially important to apply your knowledge in the right way. You are the driving force which moves engineering forward, proclaimed the first vice-governor.     


Mr. Vyacheslav SINYUGIN highlighted as well that Omsk Region has all chances to become Russia’s Engineering Center. Today the Regional Government supported by the Council of the Federation is developing a Law draft tentatively entitled “On Engineering in the Russian Federation”. Mr. Igor M. ZUGA, Senator of Omsk Region in his opening speech proclaimed that the legislation should be passed in 2014.  


-          It is strategically important for Omsk Region (sometimes called as “Priirtyshye”) to pass this law as far as this region possesses considerable engineering resource, which is the basis for any endeavors, specified the Member of Parliament. Nowadays, engineering sector is the core one for seven out of ten leading global economies, namely throughout the Republic of Korea, Japan, France and others.  This powerful tool boosts business efficiency by rendering intelligent services of design and engineering, computational, analytical and industrial nature. All of you, Young Professionals, are the future of Russian engineering.
