Dear colleagues, friends, On behalf of the Board of the Federal Agency for Sea and River Transport and on my own behalf, I sincerely congratulate all industry workers, our dear veterans and partners, on the New Year 2020 and Christmas! The year 2019, which was marked by the 15th anniversary of the Federal Agency of Rosmorrechflot, required a lot of efforts to overcome “contingency” problems, but it will also be remembered for positive events and significant achievements. Although the third decade of the 21st century, which will soon take off, is already called the “digital era”, the dawn of unmanned sea transport, massive robotics of shipping and shipbuilding, I`m sure that the man of work and the friendly team of like-minded professionals have always been and will always be the main industry basis and mover of its progressive development. Minister of Transport of Russia Yevgeny Dietrich formulated a capacious formula for success at Transport Week 2019: “Let everyone in their place conscientiously carry out their work and we will succeed”. I wish you all a happy New Year and good health, fruitful and trouble-free work, well-being and mutual understanding in the family throughout its duration, and also traditional fair wind and following seas and guaranteed shipboard dimensions for all water transport workers in Russia!
