In July of this year, Rosstat recorded continued growth of industrial production in three of the five machine-building sectors in annual comparison. The production of machinery and equipment increased at the highest rate. In general, we can talk about the output of machine-building production to pre-crisis levels and stabilization of the situation. Due to the exhaustion of the low base effect, the reason for the growth should be considered the deferred demand and the resulting shortage of a number of machine-building products. Nevertheless, already in August, the seasonally adjusted PMI index of Russian manufacturing industries, which tracks the general market situation, fell to 46.5 points, falling below the critical mark of 50 points for the third month in a row. This decline in the business environment in the Russian manufacturing industries was the highest since November 2020.

The construction of the first tractor plant in post-Soviet Russia has started in Rostov-on-Don. The construction of a tractor plant is one of the main investment projects of Rostselmash. Its budget is more than 6 billion rubles. The enterprise with a capacity of up to 5,000 cars per year will significantly increase the production of Russian Rostselmash tractors, as well as road construction equipment. The company intends to put the enterprise into operation by the end of 2022. It is planned to produce a full range of tractors of the company, as well as road construction equipment.

The value volume of exports of mechanical engineering products in January-July 2021 amounted to $17.063 billion, while the volume of imports of mechanical engineering products is 7.9 times higher — $134.825 billion. In annual comparison, the growth of export volumes for the first seven months is observed in all categories, both in absolute and monetary terms. Export growth is also recorded in the monthly dynamics in the passenger car category. Also, according to the results of July 2021, there is a significant increase in imports for all items in annual comparison. At the same time, the growth rate of imports in monetary terms is on average higher than the growth rate of exports.

Kamaz PJSC presented the first hydrogen-powered passenger bus at the Comtrans-2021 exhibition in Moscow. The company plans to test the prototype on the streets of Moscow in 2022. The power reserve of the water bus is 250 km, which is 180 km more than that of an electric bus without fuel cells. The maximum speed of the car is 80 km/h.

The Russian government has approved a ban on public procurement in relation to foreign electronics. In particular, we are talking about imported integrated circuits, smart cards, laptops, tablets, computers, servers and lighting products. In relation to the rest of the electronics and electronic medical equipment, state customers will be required to apply the "second extra" rule. This rule implies that the customer is obliged to reject all applications for participation in the purchase, in which imported products are offered, if at least one application is submitted with a proposal to supply domestic electronics. The adopted resolution was a logical continuation of the legislative work aimed at developing import substitution processes.

The Russian government has approved the concept of production and use of electric vehicles for the period up to 2030. The concept defines key tasks in this area, including stimulating demand for electric vehicles through concessional lending and the development of comprehensive urban programs. The total budget of the concept is estimated at 591 billion rubles until 2030, extra-budgetary funds-about 499 billion rubles. additional tax revenues to the budget-more than 460 billion rubles. According to the results of the implementation of the concept, by 2030 it is planned to produce at least 10% of electric vehicles in the total production of vehicles in Russia, to put into operation at least 72 thousand charging stations, of which at least 28 thousand are "fast" with a capacity of 150 kW, to launch plants for the production of cells for traction batteries, cathode and anode materials, hydrogen fuel cells, as well as electric motors, power and control electronics, to create at least 39 thousand high-performance jobs.
