MOSCOW, July 24 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian governmental military industrial committee will discuss problematic issues in the development of the production of civilian airplanes in Russia on August 14, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said at an urgent meeting devoted to the development of civilian and combat aircraft-building here on Wednesday.
“I instruct the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the United Aircraft Corporation to make a report over the development strategy of this corporation by this meeting,” Rogozin said. He noted that this document should be made in compliance with the state program over the development of the aircraft-building industry for the period from 2013 until 2025.
Meanwhile, the deputy prime minister will hear the reports to fulfil several instructions from the country’s leadership in the middle of August. In particular, these instructions envisage the making of changes in the federal target program for the development of civilian aircraft until 2015 over the creation of airplanes for local airlines.
The agencies concerned should make proposals to lay a legal base to promote Russian civilian airplanes on the market, Rogozin said. This document should formulate the measures, which are aimed at a higher demand on Russian civilian aircraft.
