MOSCOW, May 29 (Itar-Tass) – League for Assistance to Defense Industries is due to have a congress in the Russian Government Building Tuesday, with a number of high-rank officials expected to take part in it.
The list of participants includes Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, the Vice President of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, MP Vladimir Gutenyov, representatives of appropriate federal ministries and departments, and industrial executives.
The participants will discuss some provisions of the organization’s charter, the rotation of leadership and election of new governing bodies.
Set up May 25, 1992, the League is called upon to bring Russia’s defense enterprises together.
“Momentous tasks facing the Russian defense manufacturing sector and pertaining to the buildup of Russia’s defense capability and the creation of innovative, competitive mechanical engineering, demand an intensification of the League’s activity,” Gutenyov said.
In the light of it, the Russian Mechanical Engineering Association is seeking additional resources so as to fill the League’s activity with new contents, “since the attention the state gives to the defense manufacturing complex should be transformed in the short-term into practical steps for assuring a dynamic growth of the sector,” Gutenyov said.
Among the main objectives, he named the importance of raising the level of the State Defense Order. In this connection, the expected re-subordination of the federal agency for defense products supplies /Rosoboronpostavka/ to the governmental military-industrial commission is a very correct and timely step,” Gutenyov said.
“This decision will certainly need broad support on the part of expert unions,” he said adding that League for Assistance to Defense Industries is precisely the organization, which can play an integrative role.
“I’m sure the relevant committees of the Association of Machine Builders and the League will help formulate a logical and important theory for the modernization of defense industry governance so that it could generally help modernization of the economy,” Gutenyov said.
