Global Victoria, in partnership with the SCHNEIDER GROUP are pleased to invite Victorian METS exporters to participate in this webinar: Opportunities for Australian METS industry in Russia.

Webinar speakers will provide participants an overview of Russian market entry and offer practical advice, including understanding the opportunities and trends and how to engage with potential business partners.

With a landmass of 17 million square km's and a population of 149 million, the Russian mining industry remains a key GDP contributor to the economy.

Russia is a global player in the mining industry, produces 20 per cent of the world’s cobalt and nickel, alongside 5 to 7 per cent of global iron ore and coal production in addition to diamond, gold and other minerals.

Russian firms are struggling to produce much-needed equipment domestically and are entirely dependant on importing mining equipment and technology services (METS) to optimise their mining industry.  Firms in Russia are continually seeking out innovative technologies capable of unlocking deposits and improving productivity on mine sites.
