UrBC, Magnitogorsk, November 22, 2017. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) won the Priority 2017 Import Substitution Contest in Metallurgy for developing its high quality zinc-coated rolled produce facilities.

According to MMK Information, PR & Advertising Department, the awarding ceremony took place in Moscow on November 17 and was attended by the Russian Government officials, State Duma deputies, Chamber of Commerce & Industry representatives, and members of other organizations and departments.
