The message reads, in part:
“The recent years have seen your company make strides and gain a strong foothold on Russia’s car assembly and manufacturing market. The serious industrial and technological potential of AVTOTOR, its modern working environment and the investment the company has attracted have considerably contributed to the economic development of the Kaliningrad Region and the resolution of urgent social issues.
It is noteworthy that the current situation, brought on by Western sanctions, has not prevented the company from retaining skilled labour, upgrading its existing capabilities, and making new and promising business contacts.”
The President also congratulated the AVTOTOR team on their professional holiday, Machine Builder’s Day.
