"Russia will sign a firm contract with the Chinese partners for the advanced heavy helicopter production by the end of this year," Director of International Cooperation and Regional Development Viktor Kladov said during the exhibition, Inoprom-2016, Rostec reported Monday.

The corresponding intergovernmental agreement was signed recently in Beijing in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to the document, the Russian and Chinese parties will jointly develop the advanced heavy helicopter for its subsequent serial production in China, aiming to meet the demand at the Chinese market.
