Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation) has won first prizes at National Golden Idea Awards 2018 for its contribution to providing information support for Russia’s military-technical cooperation (MTC) with foreign countries and for involvement in military product development.
The first prizes were taken by a Rosoboronexport team for setting up a professional association of journalists, experts and analysts specialized in military-technical cooperation within the Rosoboronexport Press Club, as well as a team of specialists from Russia’s defense industry with the participation of a Rosoboronexport employee for developing the export version of one of the most demanded weapon systems on the world market.
“Above all, the first-prize Golden Idea awards are high praise for performance of our entire company. This reassures us that we have chosen the right path of development. Despite the pressure of Western sanctions, Rosoboronexport, as a key actor in Russia’s military-technical cooperation with foreign countries, keeps promoting domestic high-tech products abroad in an effective and consistent manner. This is done both in the information field and in direct work with foreign customers, by implementing their requests and wishes in the process of export weapon development and production. This has yielded results: the whole world knows that Russian weapons are the best today,” said Rosoboronexport’s Director General Alexander Mikheev.
The annual National Golden Idea Award was established by the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia to facilitate the export of Russian military products, develop and manufacture the newest competitive domestic weapons and military hardware, as well as to enhance military-technical cooperation between Russia and foreign countries.
