Dear friends!

I congratulate you on the opening of the XIII International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017!

One of the world's largest aviation forums MAKS, aims to demonstrate the latest achievements and technologies, to promote the international cooperation in the aerospace sphere. This is a significant event both for the whole country and for the Moscow region, because a large number of leading research institutions and production enterprises of the industry is concentrated here.

It is very important that the significant attention in the program of MAKS-2017 is paid not only to technical subjects, but also to such a topical issue as consolidation of science, business and administration to address global and applied problems of aerospace industry's development at the international level. There is no doubt that the creative discussions, exchange of ideas and experience will contribute to positive changes and achieving mutual success.

For many of us, MAKS is also a big and colorful celebration. We traditionally expect from it a spectacular flight program, an exciting show with participation of best flight groups of Russia and abroad.

I wish all the participants of the Aviation Salon productive business communication and new promising projects, and guests and spectators — bright impressions and discoveries!
