“The BashAgroMash company is accredited in the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation to participate in the federal subsidy program for Russian machinery manufacturers,” he said. “In the city of Blagoveshchensk, a tractor assembling facility is launched jointly with our Chinese partners from the "Shifeng" company. Some of these products are already presented at the exhibition here. These are quite good vehicles. The volume of production at this enterprise will be significant, exceeding several thousand vehicles a year.”
