The telegram reads, in part:
“Your forum’s prestige is steadily increasing as a representative platform for constructive and substantive dialogue by the heads of government authorities and the business community on current problems in developing the Russian engineering sector. The large-scale exposition that vividly demonstrates the newest examples of military and civil technologies, introduces promising projects and initiatives aimed at modernising production capacity and increasing the competitiveness of the products being released, deserves particular attention from professionals.
I am confident that your rich and varied agenda will draw the attention and interest of specialists from different nations, promoting the development of international cooperation in the high-tech, knowledge-intensive sectors of the economy. And, of course, the forum has great significance for strengthening the innovative potential of Russian engineering.”
