According to the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations, Vladimir Efimov, in the structure of high-tech exports, one of the best growth indicators is demonstrated by the commodity category, which includes optics, measuring instruments, and medical equipment: by the end of January-July 2021, the volume of deliveries amounted to $251.06 million, which is a third more than in the same period last year.
