“We have been able to come back and strengthen cooperation with Asia-Pacific nations. It would be inappropriate to us to reveal contract pricing details, but we can clearly state that we have achieved a considerable growth in the level of cooperation with APAC countries,” Kalashnikov CEO Alexey Krivoruchko said in a press release Monday.
“Over the last two years the company has substantially stepped up its cooperation with Asia-Pacific nations. To us it is one of the potential sales markets where Kalashnikov has not had any physical presence since 2001,” Alexey said.
