Pospelov added that the priorities included "items for commercial sea, river and fishery shipbuilding, marine equipment and ships for the exploration of offshore energy.

The Union of Russian Shipowners (SOROSS) has declared its support for the Program and invites participation by the world maritime community in the 2nd Maritime Forum of Russia to be held in conjunction with NEVA 2003. The government of Russia has created the Program to "develop high technology machinery and equipment for exploration of oil & gas deposits in the Arctic Offshore Zones 2003 - 2012". Masliukov, President and the Board of the Union of Oil & Gas Equipment Producers have committed their support to maximize participation in the Offshore Energy Sector of the Exhibition.
