Today, on May 20, in showroom "Expo — Nikolaev" two opened "in one" specialized exhibitions - "Shipbuilding-2009" and "Water transport".
After a ceremonial opening carrying out "a round table" with representatives of the ship-building enterprises was supposed. However heads of two of the largest of them - GAHK "ChSZ" and GP "Shipbuilding Plant of 61 Communard" - on action weren't present (in spite of the fact that organizers of action, having invited guests from Poland, it is proud called the exhibition "international").
Mayor of NikolaevVladimir Chaykand I tried to inform that Nikolaev won't delete yet from the world card as the city of shipbuilders. It assured that at all problems available in this branch, the shipbuilding and shipbuilding aren't disregarded.
- That load of our shipbuilding plants was less, for the last three - four years we took away all block of housing and socially - the cultural sphere in municipal property, -the mayortold.
- Difficultly for all. To shipbuilders - especially. I remind that the first hryvnia... the vessel can give returns only after six years of operation. And, undoubtedly, in this crisis situation, certainly, to give the "long" credits with small percent very difficult... Especially where the ship-building branch, branch of the sea industry is budget forming, city-forming.
The mayor noted that in Nikolaev only in one sea transport branch (for construction of terminals, moorings) for the last three years more than 100 million dollars are enclosed. In his opinion, it gave the chance to develop that potential which now works for the benefit of our state.
At the same time, it isn't enough reasons for optimism.
- It is a pity that shipbuilders of the Russian Federation lost today interest, - complainedVladimir Chaika.
- I am not satisfied today that conscience at heads of ship-building branch is, you know, on boondocks of our community... And even that message which was at cabinet council of Ministers - the resolution on shipbuilding support...Though somebody would ask shipbuilders that it for the resolution! Would ask the mayor who is a shipbuilder! I graduated from the shipbuilding institute and I am the shipbuilder and the shipbuilder... Therefore I have the right, at least, to criticize that try to throw today in political such aspect to us a bone which even can't be taken and licked, or "грызнуть".
- I am proud of that Ukraine - the big sea state. But, at least, I can't be proud that we the city of shipbuilders, can show a bright star of the revival, - in summary declaredV. Chaika.
