    Alexander Boyko, General Director of NKPak, Chairman of the Subcommittee of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation on the development of the packaging industry:

    “Starting from March 2022, the domestic packaging industry is facing unprecedented challenges generated by the sanctions. For the Russian packaging market, which is quite seriously integrated into the global packaging industry, this has created tangible problems. To a lesser extent, they manifested themselves in the production of packaging based on domestic raw materials and materials. In those segments where the share of their imports is high, the situation has deteriorated sharply. The departure from the Russian market of a number of large companies, both producing packaging materials, products and equipment, and supplying them from abroad, forces packers to look for opportunities for the fastest import substitution, organization of their production in our country, and reorientation to loyal countries. The market is adapting to the new reality. Processes aimed at stabilizing the production and use of packaging have been launched in the packaging industry and related industries. Measures to support the packaging industry by the Government of the Russian Federation have been outlined and are being implemented. However, much that remains to be done will require a significant investment of time and resources. Under the current conditions, packaging exhibitions and business programs held within their framework are of particular importance. In addition to demonstrating new packaging solutions, they strengthen the contacts of specialists operating in the field of packaging production and application, inspire confidence that the crisis phenomena here will be overcome.”
