Denis Manturov Held A Working Meeting With The Head Of The Republic Of Mordovia Vladimir Volkov

Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, held a working meeting with the Head of the Republic of Mordovia, Vladimir Volkov.


The meeting discussed the issue of protecting the domestic market of optical fiber and supporting the priority use of cable in the implementation of measures of state programs. In particular, they talked about the inclusion of fiber-optic cables in the list of goods for which there is a preference at a price of 15% for purchases for state needs.


Given these changes, cables based on domestic fiber will have to fully meet the needs of state and municipal institutions, which will create prerequisites for further increasing the output of cable products and fiber

- said Denis Manturov.


The conversation also touched on the construction of the second start-up complex of an optical fiber plant in Saransk. The complex is focused on the production of its own blanks (preforms) for drawing optical fibers. The investment project for its launch is under active development. The head of Mordovia, Vladimir Volkov, asked to support the development of a unique production in the region: “This project is strategically important not only for the Republic, but also for the country, as it will help relieve dependence on imports and establish a closed-loop optical fiber production in Saransk. The launch of the second stage will reduce the cost of production and increase the competitiveness of Saransk OVS products - this is what we are striving for, ”said the Head of the Republic.


Given the current market situation, the issue of building preform production is further appropriate to consider in conjunction with additional measures of state support, including measures of customs-tariff and non-tariff regulation

- stressed the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia.



In continuation of the topic, Denis Manturov set the task of creating production of high-purity quartz materials, which will make it possible to remove dependence on imports and ensure a closed-loop production of optical fiber in the country.
