On behalf of the EMERCOM of Russia I welcome participants and guests of the 12th international exhibition and scientific conference “Hydroaviasalon-2018”.
Over the years, the exhibition has become a large-scale international project that allows state authorities and the public from different regions of Russia to consolidate efforts in ensuring security. At the “Hydroaviasalon” platforms, leading developers and manufacturers of aviation and marine equipment have a unique opportunity to discuss its relevance and prospects for further improvement.
Security is a multidimensional task, the successful solution of which is possible only with the use of the most advanced technologies, the latest equipment and modern information systems.
Many Russian developments already have long-term prospects. The undoubted interest among experts will cause the technique that allows you to save people from the air and on the water. Presented Russian multi-purpose amphibious aircraft Be-200ChS for more than 15 years remains one of the largest and most effective fire-fighting flying vehicles in the world. EMERCOM aviation had confirmed it by hundreds of successful rescue operations during combating the wildfires in Russia and abroad.
I am sure that Hydroaviasalon-2018 will become a strategically important event for the modernization of our aviation and marine vessels, will promote the increasing of protection level of the country's citizens and prevention of the emergencies.
I wish the exhibition participants fruitful work, high achievements and all the best!
The Minister Of The Russian Federation for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters
