Rare Earth Metals Production: Global Demand and National Objectives

The extraction and processing of terra rare and rare-earth metals is an important condition for the raw material sovereignty and technological development of Hi-tech industries. All Hi-tech industries have a special economic status and in this sense directly depend on the mineral resource base or export-import cooperation. The rapid increase in the production of REM and their processing into higher-grade products is the most important condition for meeting the growing demand for REM both domestically and on the global market. Which Hi-tech industries are interested in increasing the production of REM? What are the conditions for international partnership in the field of high technologies in terms of REM and products based on them? What are the export opportunities of the Russian rare-earth industry?
