Strategic priorities

I believe that we are witnessing the beginning of a new stage in Nornickel’s growth story rather than the end of the Company's successful value enhancement exercise. I am positive about this as our Company has its feet firmly on the ground thanks to its robust long-term financial model and strategy focused on value creation fundamentals and underpinned by the sustained competitiveness of the world’s best Tier I assets.
