This is a very good result against the backdrop of a difficult market situation that continues to influence demand and sales results. But, despite the difficult situation, our Dubai venue remains attractive to customers from all over the world – more than 80 companies took part in the auction,”said Evgeny Agureev, ALROSA Deputy General Director.
