The prospects for the importation of meat from China to Russia through the border crossing points of the EAO are discussed.

Yelena Vasilenko, First Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Jewish Autonomous Region, held a meeting with the participation of representatives of the RosTransErTU, the Rosselkhoznadzor Office for the Khabarovsk Territory and the EAO, the Birobidzhan Customs, the Nizhnelinsky checkpoint, the regional government authorities and other leaders. Issues of strengthening and modernizing checkpoints located on the territory of the region were discussed with the aim of organizing transport of livestock products from China to the Russian Federation, the press service of the regional administration said.

It was about the supply of meat, which must be carried out in conditions of financial and economic pressure on Russia. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation plans to add to the agenda of the XXIV meeting of the Council of Heads of Subjects of the Russian Federation, scheduled for November this year, as the main topic of enhancing interregional and border ties of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation in the context of the implementation of retaliatory measures related to the sanctions imposed against Russia. Solving the problems associated with the transportation of livestock products is also very important for the Jewish Autonomous Region, since there is a need for these products from local producers. So far, we are talking only about the Nizhneleninsky checkpoint, which is included in the list of checkpoints on the state border intended for the import into the territory of the Russian Federation of animals, products of animal origin, feed, feed additives, medicines for animals and regulated products (regulated articles, regulated goods) , approved by the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation. The meeting participants also discussed the prospects for including another checkpoint in the Jewish Autonomous Region, Amurzet, in this list.

As the meeting participants recognized, in principle, the Jewish Autonomous Region has the most convenient logistic component. Indeed, in the Chinese province of Heilongjiang, all meat producers are located closest to the border with the Jewish Autonomous Region. Governors of the Jewish Autonomous Region Alexander Vinnikov and Heilongjiang Province Lu Hao spoke at the meeting in the Jewish Autonomous Region about the prospects for the development of this area of ​​cooperation in September. They discussed with interest the possibilities of ensuring the supply of meat for the needs of the Jewish Autonomous Region and expressed their readiness to facilitate their implementation.

All participants in the meeting identified the problems that need to be solved today in order to speed up the resolution of issues of cooperation in this direction. During the week, representatives of the departments will send their proposals to the first deputy chairman of the government, Elena Vasilenko, and these proposals will in turn become the basis for requests from the head of the region to the appropriate federal authorities. It was also decided at the meeting of the regional coordinating council on foreign economic activity and border policy, which is scheduled for November 13, to continue the discussion of strengthening and modernizing checkpoints located on the territory of the region in order to organize the transportation of livestock products from China to the Russian Federation
