Greetings to guests and participants

Dear friends!

I welcome organizers, participants and guests of “MAKS-2017”.

History of carrying out the International Aviation and Space Salons in Russia is inseparably linked with Moscow. Already in the title of the exhibition “Mosaeroshow-92” which took place 25 years ago there was a name of our capital. Today one of the main collective expositions of a prestigious aviaforum is the “Made in Moscow” stand showing hi-tech products of the Moscow enterprises.

In our city the leading organizations of the Russian space branch are concentrated, tens of thousands of Muscovites — scientists, engineers, workers are employed here. The Government of Moscow creates conditions for innovative development of the enterprises, gives them opportunities of technoparks and industrial parks, offers the preferences allowing to realize most fully the capacity of the scientific and industrial organizations.

Due to its highly topical program, “MAKS-2017” will draw attention of experts from many countries of the world, will contribute to the expansion of the international cooperation and implementation of mutually advantageous projects. Participants and guests of salon during these days will be able not only to work fruitfully but also will get unforgettable impressions meeting our beautiful Moscow.
