MOSCOW, September 27. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has congratulated workers and veterans of the machine-building industry with a professional holiday celebrated on Sunday.
"Machine-building is the heart of industry, the most important part of Russian economy, its industrial and intellectual potential. Today, when our country took a firm course to import substitution, machine-building can become the locomotive that will take all other sectors with it, give a powerful impetus to opening new hi-tech production, attracting investment, increasing effectiveness and improving the quality of products," Medvedev said in a congratulatory telegram published on the official governmental website.
The prime minister stressed the multi-faceted results of working in the machine-building industry. "Those are cars, city passenger transport, trains and planes, ships and rockets, medical and agriculture equipment. You make people’s life much more comfortable and convenient. Of course, it is impossible to over-estimate your contribution to ensuring the defense capabilities of the country, equipping our army with the newest means of defense against any potential threats," Medvedev wrote.
