Neftegaz.LIVE: supply strategies for the industry
The final day of the Neftegaz.LIVE platform at the Neftegaz 2023 exhibition was dedicated to discussing issues related to the supply of equipment for the oil and gas industry.
German Kuzmenko, Head of Industrial Services Development and Head of Industrial Division for Eastern Europe at HQTS quality control service provider, spoke about special features of cooperation with companies from China and South-East Asia in the new environment.

Operating in China since 1987, HQTS is now recognised as one of the ten fastest growing brands in APEC countries and is ready to assist Russian companies in finding reliable business partners willing to supply the necessary equipment to Russia.
