Simultaneously, import to Russia and Ukraine becomes more profitable then local production, even from such far origins as Australia, Brazil and USA. So, special round table discussion while the conference is dedicated to the question: may import of more competitive product by the price and quality suppress export, which is used to be considered a magic wand for the local industry for the last two decades?

For those who came into coal mining not to snatch a gain for a short moment, but a responsible investor with a sustainable development vision of its mission it is obvious that social and environmental concerns are not less important then financial and trade ones. Sometimes they become even more pressing. And certainly, we are going to pay due attention to the developments of these issues while the event.

Among the key solutions for a plenty of hard problems may be advanced mining technologies, including alternative fuels, etc. Whats their role in practice? Whats on the long way for their implementation and why it is so long? What are marketing and investment perspectives for those products and technologies?

As you see, these are not local concerns and we are not going to make a local event, as it is targeted to the international companies and organizations far more then to domestic ones.
