September 18, 2019 17:28

Moscow's constructors and exporters of coal and grain are among the five fastest growing companies in the Forbes rating. In the annual ranking of the 200 largest private companies in Russia, there are companies which had almost the three-digit revenue growth rates for 2018.

Among them were two companies that construct houses in the Moscow region. In addition, two coal mining companies were in the top five - at the end of 2018, exported coal supplies from Russia increased by 20 million tons, while coking coal prices remained at an extremely high level due to reduced exports from Australia.

One company involved in the production of vegetable oil and the export of Russian grain is on the list of record holders for revenue growth. This is primarily due to the fact that in the agricultural year, which ended on June 30, 2018, Russia harvested a record grain crop (135.4 million tons) and exported more than 40 million tons of wheat.
