SOCHI, February 27. /TASS/. The larger share of civil output at enterprises of Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos will help avoid possible social problems during the sector’s optimization, Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said on Monday.
Speaking at a roundtable discussion on diversification of the defense and industrial sector at a Russian investment forum, the vice-premier noted that the domestic rocket and space industry employed over 250,000 people.
"If we look at purely economic figures, then labor productivity at Roscosmos enterprises lags several times behind leading US private companies," the vice-premier said.
According to Rogozin, "most enterprises [in the rocket and space industry] utilize their capacities by 30-40%, i.e. they are stably under-loaded."
"We face the problem of technological fitness - the sector’s optimization and its modernization," Rogozin said.
According to the vice-premier, in this case, "a very important social aspect will surface."
"Will people working in the sector be thrown out onto the so-called market?" the vice-premier asked rhetorically.
Rogozin said he was confident it was necessary to increase civil output at enterprises of the rocket and space industry.
"In this regard, civil output is of special necessity," the vice-premier said.
"In the final account, the creation of global competitive corporations that have found a niche on the world market must crown the implementation of the strategy of establishing sectoral holding companies," Rogozin said.
