"A steady growth in aircraft sales is a criterion of the success of the strategy-stipulated objectives," the official said. "The objective is to raise sales to $7 billion by 2015 from the current $3 billion."
By that time, civil aircraft should account for 40%-45% of overall aircraft sales against the present 30%.
The government plans to invite private companies to invest in the program. Private investment is expected to reach 25%-40% of the overall amount of financing by 2015. A total of about $20 billion, including $12 billion in budget allocations, will have to be invested in the program.
