EAO government is ready to coordinate the work of farmers and entrepreneurs

The Governor of the EAO Alexander Vinnikov held a meeting with representatives of leading farms, large retail chains and administrations of the districts of the region. It was about the sale of agricultural products of local producers in the trade networks, the press service of the head of the region said.

The governor noted that the President and the Government of the country set the task of state authorities and local government in 2015-2016 to significantly increase the volume of food production, primarily for own consumption. The fulfillment of this task depends to a large extent on coordinated joint actions of agricultural producers and entrepreneurs engaged in trade. It is well known, the governor stressed, that there is a direct link between the lack of a market for the sale of products and the reduction of agricultural areas.

"If we do not find common ground and mutual interest in the work of farmers and entrepreneurs," the head of the region noted, "we are unlikely to be able to solve the task of replacing imported products. The issue of supporting our own commodity producer today is more acute than ever. The government of the region is ready to act as the coordinator of all this work, in order to finally give the inhabitants of the autonomy in the necessary quantity the quality products of local farmers and personal subsidiary farms of citizens.

Speaking at the meeting, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the EAO Leonid Petukhov said that today in the autonomy there is a sufficient number of areas in circulation to provide the population of the region with the necessary food.

The issues of pricing policy, the possibility of storing and packaging products, delivering them to retail outlets and others were discussed. In general, the speakers expressed their interest in mutually beneficial cooperation and readiness to negotiate the terms of partnership.

The head of the region recommended that agreements on cooperation be signed by February of the year 2015 so that farmers know what and how much they have to grow. Alexander Vinnikov did not exclude the possibility of supporting the most active agricultural producers in the allocation of subsidies for the purchase of equipment, as well as increasing the amount of per hectare support to reduce the cost of farmed vegetables and potatoes.
