“In general, we have worthy products. But our arms exports are still at a fairly low level. This is about $400 million a year. Our goal is to increase Ukrainian arms exports up to $2 billion by 2025.

Now the enterprise is extremely inefficient and has a low performance level," Director General of the State Concern "Ukroboronprom" Aivaras Abromavicius said in an interview with The Page media outlet.
According to him, now the revenue per employee is only $16,000 per year. At the same time, an average industry indicator in the world is $365,000 per year.
