Medvedev urges implementation of new technologies in Russian military industrial sector
MOSCOW. March 20 (Interfax) - Russia could lose its leading positions of arms dealing in the world if the country does not implement new technologies, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.
"We have serious positions in the arms market - second place in the world in sales volume but it is becoming more and more difficult to keep up with it every year," Medvedev said on Wednesday at a military industrial conference in Moscow.
"There is only one conclusion - it's necessary to always go forward. This means to implement new basic and fundamental high-end technologies to deliver modern competitive producers. No one will feel sorry for us, if we ourselves relax, we will definitely be moved aside," the Russian prime minister said.
Medvedev said that it was necessary to establish major integrated structures in the military industrial sector.
"I think that establishing major integrated structures is a priority," the Russian Prime Minister said.
Medvedev said that this approach had already stood the test of time.
"It is necessary to consolidate efforts in various directions of the military industrial sector. It is impossible to build a modern army and fleet out of nothing, at small enterprises," Medvedev said.
