Greetings to guests and participants

I welcome participants and guests of the International aviation and space salon MAKS-2019!

This year the Moscow region for the fourteenth time hosts one of the world's largest aviation forums. MAKS is a landmark event for the professional community, business, government and anyone interested in aviation. This is a bright show in the sky and a serious meaningful work on the sites. Annually, major contracts and partnership agreements are signed at the forum, which are of strategic importance for the Russian aerospace industry.

We value very much the unique scientific and technical, production potential concentrated in Zhukovsky and other cities of Moscow region. We strive to do everything necessary to ensure that in the 21-st century it remains a basic support for the innovative development of the country, technological breakthroughs and important victories.

I am sure that MAKS 2019 will contribute to the modernization of the domestic industry and the promotion of its products to the world market. It will be another step towards our common success.

I wish all the guests of the forum fruitful business communication, prosperity and good luck in conquering new heights.

The Governor of the Moscow Region

Andrey Vorobyov
