The appointment of the official representative is a stepping stone towards the set-up of such system and a what-it-takes tool of improving the operational performance of the cluster to the world-class standards and building up exports, including the export of components. We believe that such measures included into the strategy of developing the aviation cluster will enable us to increase revenue from after-sales service by as much as 2.5 times", said Anatoly Serdyukov, operations manager of the aviation cluster at Rostec State Corporation
