Dear Participants and Guests,
I am happy to welcome you at the Third Eurasian Aerospace Congress!
The aerospace sector is the core element, flagship of and an honour to the economy of the Samara Region. Over many decades, the Samara Region has been among the largest global rocket-engineering clusters. On board a launch vehicle made here, Yuri Gagarin opened the way to space to the humankind, and it is Samara-made Soyuz engines that for more fifty years have been the heart of Russian crewed spacecraft. To a large extent the achievements of the Russian space sector are due to a high level of development of rocket engine manufacture in Samara.
In the modern context, the key objective we face is to improve competitiveness of the aerospace sector of the Region and give a fresh impetus to developing regional rocket engineering.
Every second year, the Government of the Samara Region has been a co-organizer of the Eurasian Aerospace Congress together with the Eurasian Partnership of Aerospace Clusters and assisted in holding the Congress. Over the years of existence, the Congress has become the largest and most significant event on problems of managing the global aerospace industry in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and a major business event of the International Aviation and Space Salon.
The Congress is an important market tool for developing business relationships, fostering manufacture, and establishing a favourable investment climate.
I am assured that the format of the event will enable meaningful business communications among and between participants and sharing experience at the intersectoral industrial forum.
May all participants of the Congress develop new ideas, work fruitfully and attain their objectives!
