After the opening of a cargo connection with China, fresh vegetables at affordable prices appeared in the shops of Primorsky Krai. Now in the region you can buy cucumbers and peppers from China for 200 rubles and tomatoes - for 150 rubles per kg.

According to the press service of the regional government, imported products will last for several days, and if there is no hype - for a week. If the border for freight transport is again closed, the stores will be delivered from Novosibirsk, the Republic of Korea and Iran.

Trading networks do not plan to make an extra charge, however, as Tatyana Shivydkina, head of the Primorye Ministry of Industry and Trade, noted, cucumbers and tomatoes are not socially significant products, so entrepreneurs have the right to independently set prices for them.
