Greetings to guests and participants

On behalf of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and from myself personally, I welcome the participants and guests of the 15th International Aviation and Space Salon.

It is impossible to imagine the sustainable economic growth, transport connectivity of the regions and ensuring national security, inviolability of our Country's borders without a progressive, high-tech and efficient aerospace industry. Thanks to the resolute and coordinated actions of the Government of the Russian Federation, leading enterprises and scientific organizations, new materials have been created and critical technologies have been mastered, new production facilities have been launched and existing ones have been modernized. This allows us to produce competitive products that meet the requirements of the domestic economy and international standards of safety and environmental friendliness. Our efforts to form new international partnership, first of all within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union, are bearing fruits.

MAKS-2021 demonstrates to representatives of the professional community and numerous visitors the current state and promising areas of development of the aerospace industry and related branches, presents the latest developments and advanced technological solutions, the latest achievements of scientific and engineering thought. The event's highly topical business program is designed to promote an active exchange of views on the development of science and technology.

I am sure that MAKS-2021 will meet the expectations of the participants, will contribute to the development of integration ties, attract investment, and establish long-term cooperation.

I wish you fruitful work, new business contacts and success!

Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation
