Nowadays, the aluminium industry is a powerful driver of development of the Russian economy; it feeds virtually all sectors of the energy sector. The aluminium industry enterprises, among other things, contribute to the successful implementation of large-scale projects in the fuel and energy sector.
Ensuring the technological independence of the energy sector as well as enhancing its competitiveness is inextricably linked to the supply of necessary products from the aluminium industry and the development of new technologies and ways of applying them. Owing to the qualified work of the aluminium industry's employees involved in the energy sector, we can face the future with confidence.
Let me congratulate the employees of the aluminium industry on its 90th anniversary and their professional holiday — the Metallurgist's Day! I wish you further productive work, reaching your goals and new and glorious victories!
Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation
