" Based on the world experience of the industrially advanced countries, i.e. USA and Europe, the long-term (25-30 years) Russian industrial policy should be aimed to creation and support of the backbone of high-tech industry, science and education in Russia — backbone companies — analogues of 900 US companies and, first of all, in such high-priority sectors as nuclear energy, aviation, shipbuilding. The main objectives of these companies for the next 10-15 years consists the implementation of the Russian business model «knowledge economy», the creation of world-competitive final products (nuclear power plants, aircraft, ships), capturing a significant share of the relevant niche of the world market, providing financial flows from the sale of serial products of stable employment and income state and system-formation companies."
