Tomsk Governor and Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade to create an industrial cluster in the region


At the meeting, Vladimir Mazur, Governor of the Tomsk Region, presented the cluster concept to Alexey Besprozvannykh, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia. Tugansk Ore Mining and Processing Enterprise “Ilmenite” is to be the core of the cluster in the Tomsk region. In the fall of 2022, the enterprise launched its first line of processing ore sands and producing concentrates designed for the construction industry, metallurgy, and other industries. The industrial cluster will make it possible to develop additional production facilities around “Ilmenite” with the production cycle based on the enterprise's products. The parties agreed to prepare a “communication map” for the new cluster.
