Saint Petersburg institute Gipronikel obtained 2 orders to restore a plant to make ferronickel in Kosovo. One order is to study and forecast a situation on metallurgical market, the second one - estimate costs necessary to reconstruct the enterprise ruined by aviation of the Anti-Yugoslavian coalition and partially submerged. On one hand, appealing the Russian institute for help is logic enough, so exactly Gipronikel had designed it at the end of 60s-beginning of 70s. But on the other hand, exactly this order is unique as the institute was ordered strictly economic marketing study, i.e. on which hundreds of well-known foreign consulting, marketing and other firms are specializing. European and American firms consider themselves as not only more qualified ones in economic studies, but also more impartial. But in this situation, qualification of Gipronikel was declared the highest.
Its studies of market are based on not only known trends, but also subject knowledge of all world's fields of non-ferrous metals, technological tendencies and other exact data, mainly unknown to ordinary specialists on marketing.
