"The main goal of Rosoboronexport at MAKS-2021 is to exploit all the opportunities to translate keen interest in Russian equipment into new contracts and replenish its order portfolio. To this end, we’ll make a presentation of the latest aerospace technologies, as well as discuss with foreign partners their possible participation in the implementation of joint projects," Alexander Mikheev added.
