Dear colleagues! On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan and on my personal behalf, please accept our sincere congratulations on the Shipbuilder’s Day!
From olden times, Russia has been a great maritime power. Our ancestors were outstanding seafarers and shipbuilders, and nowadays the shipbuilding profession remains one of the most respected in the society.
The year 2018 was marked by an important event of both the republic’s and the all-Russian level in the field of shipbuilding: Ak Bars Shipbuilding Corporation started its operations there. As one of the most vigorously developing shipbuilding enterprises in the country, the Zelenodolsk Shipyard has become a fundamental link in the corporation’s structure, whose main mission is focused on the successful solving of government’s important tasks to ensure the country's defence capability and development of transport communications along the Russia’s waterways.
Dear Colleagues! I sincerely wish you and your families good health, happiness and prosperity, new achievements in production! May you have good luck and success!
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry and Trade of Tatarstan Albert Karimov
