MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday the defense order profitability index for industry could be raised to 16-17% from the current seven percent.
“Seven percent is of course not enough. I don’t know whether we will be able to reach 20-25%, but 16-17% is quite realistic and sufficient for both the industry on the whole and separate enterprises to feel stable, confident and have potential for development,” Putin said at a forum of the All-Russia People’s Front movement.
“First of all, the potential for technical development,” he said.
