- 32 civil ships were launched last year. Total output of civil shipbuilding industry is to surge almost seven times. We have adopted a large-scale state programme for construction of nuclear-powered icebreakers, gas carriers, fishing ships.

Our prime export potential is in construction of warships. We are among few countries offering a nearly complete range of armament.

The Strategy defines the components of this process: innovative development of the industry, maximum local production in Russia. I hope this document will be properly extended and will lead us to our goal
