Antonov plans to build planes in Saudi Arabia

Antonov plans to build planes in Saudi Arabia. 

The first production aircraft An-132 will be built in the second half of 2018, and in Saudi Arabia will build a plant.
Two lines of assembly will be created: in Kiev and Saudi Arabia. The line in Kiev is almost ready. We need some minor revisions to release a serial aircraft.
While the plant in Saudi Arabia will be built, we have to build in Kiev and sell the first 20 planes.
Upon completion of the plant's construction, the aircraft will be produced both in Kiev and in Saudi Arabia.
In three to four years, production should reach a minimum of 12 aircraft per year on each line.
As regards market volume, according to our Saudi partners, the need of law enforcement agencies in this class of aircraft - 80 aircraft.
The need for the entire Middle East market is 250-260 aircraft. Also, in the next 10 years, we expect to replace the old An-32, which are operated in India, to the new An-132. This is more than 100 planes.
Recall that Ukrainian state-owned enterprises have discussed with the Chinese customer the supply of 50 An-178 aircraft.
