The idea of holding a large-scale meeting at the key production site in Norilsk can be a good case for other large Russian companies, because it is especially important for domestic technology suppliers and industrialists to understand the needs and help each other to reorient today.
On the first day participants will discuss government support measures for enterprises involved in import substitution, the Norilsk division’s needs, the principles of interaction with manufacturers and incentives for entrepreneurs in the Arctic.
