I am sincerely glad to welcome you to the XV International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2021!
The salon in Zhukovsky is certainly the main event in the calendar of both professionals and enthusiasts of aviation and astronautics. And one can be sure that every year the range of attention to these industries' activities will expand, because those branches of industry are the most technologically advanced and every year they delight and surprise us with their new products.
Representatives of the State Corporation "Roscosmos" enterprises will be happy to tell the public about their work and present projects, the implementation of which will not only confirm our leading positions in the peaceful exploration of space but also create prerequisites for the development of other sectors of the economy.
Aviation and cosmonautics are close in spirit. Our specialists are united by the fact that they are enthusiastic knowledgeable people who are able to dream, create and realize their dreams. Therefore, meeting hundreds of such people at the forum site, getting acquainted with their new developments and projects, formal communication and discussions "without ties" will surely have the most positive impact on the results of their work and the development of the Russian economy as a whole.
The organizers of the Salon should gain the warmest words of gratitude for the brilliant preparation of this festivity of aviation and astronautics, and to its participants I wish pleasant impressions, meaningful business communication, new creative ideas and, of course, good health in our alarming epidemic time.
General Director of Roskosmos State Corporation
