The chief of the regional state administration Aleksandr Sadykov, the mayor of Nikolaev Chayka Vladymir, vice-president of the “Ukrsudprom” Association Viktor Lisitsky greeted the participants of the exhibition. In spite of the reserved seeming optimism, the speakers couldn’t hide the anxiety of the general condition of the shipbuilding and the fact of the decreasing of exhibition participant’s number. The appeal to the government to pay proper attention to the field that is able to become the economic engine of the country doesn’t have an effect yet.
“…..the Ship repairing factory is lost, and also we can loose the factory by the 61 of communard…”, accentuated the mayor. & ldquo;…As a result, only 7 percent of the municipal budget contains the receipts from the shipbuilding. For the field being created by the city of Nikolaev this number is really absurd….”
