One sensation is Russia's unique and hitherto unknown product in the field of microsatellite technologies. Professor Viktor Orayevsky, president of the Intergeokosmos Association, based in the town of Troitsk, has shown to Pacific businessmen a system capable of space-based monitoring of natural and man-caused catastrophes, radioactive contamination and other emergency situations.
The system is based on a microsatellite weighing some 100 kilograms. The receiving equipment is truck-mounted. The total cost of the equipment set offered for sale, including the satellite, does not exceed 40 million dollars. Until now, there have been no comparable technologies on the world market.
The Pacific business circles have also paid attention to proposals of the OMZ Corporation (the United Machine-Building Factories), led by Kakha Bendukidze. The OMZ offers for sale drilling platforms, special steels, equipment for energy projects.

Businessmen visiting the Investment Market say that Russian proposals for the region become more and more topical for the Asia-Pacific Region economies.
