Alexey Ulyukaev urged ASEAN countries to increase exports of agricultural products to Russia

The countries of Southeast Asia could sharply increase the volume of food supplies to Russia in order to compensate for the reduction in Russian imports from countries that have come under Russian "counter-sanctions". This proposal was made to his fellow ministers of the Asian region by the head of the RF Ministry of Economy Alexei Ulyukayev at the Russia-ASEAN meeting in Myanmar.

The statement was made in Naypyidaw, the capital of Myanmar, where the heads of economic departments of Russia and the countries of the Association of Southeast Asia (ASEAN) met. “This is, in particular, about fresh vegetables and fruits. We are familiar with the high quality standards of agricultural production in your countries, and we will welcome the export of your products to Russia, including nuts, beef, pork and chicken, ”explained Alexey Ulyukaev. In 2013, the trade between the Russian Federation and the countries of the union amounted to $ 17,5 billion (imports to the Russian Federation exceeded exports by $ 0,5 billion). According to the forecasts of the department, this year the figure may grow by 6%. At the same time, food supplies from the countries of Southeast Asia to Russia in the coming months can grow by 30-40%, the head of the Ministry of Economy hopes.

The Russian Federation will also once again consider the possibility of importing fish products (previously it was recognized as not meeting the Russian standards), and also increase purchases of Indonesian palm oil.
