Dear guests and participants of the tenth International Maritime Defence Show!

For many years the Show has successfully served to strengthen friendly ties, open benevolent exchange of experience among representatives of leading enterprises from our country and delegations from many foreign countries.
St. Petersburg once again hosts one of the world's largest exhibitions of naval equipment. Heads of power departments, representatives of expert and business community will be able to get acquainted with the advanced achievements in the field of shipbuilding, naval aviation and weapons.
The informative exposition has been prepared by the organizations of the Russian defense industry. They’ll demonstrate the latest models of warships and boats, unique technological developments in the field of navigation and communications. Undoubtedly all this will give an impulse for further work to provide the Navy with modern and reliable models of naval equipment and weapons.
I wish the tenth anniversary Show further success and prosperity and its participants and guests mutually beneficial and fruitful communication!

Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation
Yury Borisov
