Uralvagonzavod and Canada's Bombardier plan to sign a package of agreements to set up production in Russia of cars for subway trains and trams at the Innoprom-2012 exhibition that will be held July 12-15 in Yekaterinburg, Uralvagonzavod said, according to Interfax.

The agreements call for transferring technology to Russia, training staff at Bombardier's European plants, joint design and organization of production.
