The meeting was moderated by Deputy Minister Aleksey Savelchev.
The main issue under discussion was reconciliation of the information on the estimated industrial output and traffic until 2030.

Therefore, it is important to coordinate the interaction between all participants in the process beforehand in order to develop relevant timely decisions by the federal railway carrier.
