«Development of promising weapons and technology will allow to expand military ties with established foreign partners and to set the scene for Russian companies to enter new markets. For this purpose it is necessary to use more frequently opportunities of exhibition activity.
In this connection I would like to remind: during July - September of this year there were International Maritime Defence Show in St. Petersburg (more than 450 companies from 31 countries), International Aviation and Space Salon (MAKS-2013, Moscow) which a large number of organizations attended (over 900 organizations from 44 countries) and finally, recently held Russian Arms Expo in Nizhny Tagil (more than 400 organizations from 45 countries). New samples of Russian weapons and military equipment attracted great attention of specialists from all participating countries. Only at MAKS contract value was over $ 21 billion.»
