Project of «Titan-Polymer» is supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia
The project of «Titan-Polymer» Ltd. on creation of a complex on production of polyethylene-terephthalate (PET) and polymer processing was discussed at an interdepartmental meeting, that was held in the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation upon an initiative of Sergey Tsyb, First Deputy Minister.
The event was attended by the Deputy of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, representatives of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, the Industrial Development Fund, the Russian Export Center, the Pskov region Administration, the special economic zone (SEZ) «Moglino», as well as financial institutions.
