One of Russia's biggest problems at the moment is the scarcity of markets interested in the development of nanotechnology and nano-industries, believes businessman Mikhail Prokhorov,, the president of Onexim Group, a co-owner of Interros Group and former director general of OAO Norilsk Nickel.
Prokhorov, who took part in a meeting of the governmental commission for nanotechnology, told reporters Thursday he got down to working on hydrogen energy problems several years ago.
"I started working on those projects in 2003 and I plan to continue promoting them in the future," he said.
"Russia's biggest problem is that very few markets here have interest in nano-industries," Prokhorov said. "We're lagging behind others in that field and hence the need for creating new materials."
