A new 3-year 2018-2020 contract period is to start next year. The list of applicants for long-term agreements will be formed with due account for clients’ relevant applications, completeness of submitted data and based on the analysis of results of trade cooperation between ALROSA and applicants in the period from 2015 to September 2017.
The assortment and volume of goods under a 3-year agreement will be formed on an annual basis. According to ALROSA, the main aim of these innovations is to take into account its customers’ assortment preferences.

We also intend to preserve all the best practices in our sales system”, emphasized Sergey Ivanov in his speech. “You may rest assured that our sales policy will be improved with due account of our customers’ opinions and market views”, he added.
