Welcome you at the opening of the tenth International Maritime Defence Show.
Our country is justifiably proud of great maritime power status and of outstanding scientists, naval architects, engineers, working men who have written vivid pages in the history of domestic shipbuilding, laid the highest quality standards for the work of industry specialists.
In design bureaus, shipbuilding and ship repair yards there are real professionals who create powerful nuclear and diesel-electric icebreakers, research and cruise ships, modern surface and underwater warships, modernize and renew enterprises, widely introduce advanced innovative technologies. Many of these developments are truly unique.
I am sure that the anniversary International Maritime Defence Show will be a vivid and significant event and undoubtedly serve to strengthen many-sided interstate relations important for the industry development.
I wish the participants to have successful and productive work.
Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation
