An absolutely new product was introduced to the participants of the forum. It was medium voltage cable with cross-linked polyethylene insulation with current-conducting cable of sector shape.
Manufacturers pointed to some moments, that prevent from the development of the cable industry. They are the absence of domestic materials for cable and wires manufacturing in some cases, insufficient consistency of all the participants of the process in questions of import substitution.
