The first Russian-Chinese fair of agricultural products opened in China
17 October 2014, the first Russian-Chinese fair of fruit, vegetable, meat and food products opened in the city of Suifenhe. It passes in the international exhibition center of the complex-duty-free zone.
The main goal of the fair is to establish contacts for the supply of agricultural products to Russia under the embargo, which was introduced in August this year. Vegetables and fruits from China have long been successfully exported to Russia, but meat is allowed to be supplied to the country for the first time in the last 10 years.
The fair was organized by the Heilongjiang Provincial Department, the People’s Government of Suifenhe City, the Heilongjiang Branch of the China International Trade Facilitation Committee, and the Primorsk Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
At the opening ceremony, the head of the department of commerce of Heilongjiang Province, Wujun Zhao, the chairman of the Economic Assistance Chamber of the province of Zhonqi E, as well as specially invited guests from Russia spoke. The participants were greeted by Pavel Kitaev, Deputy Chairman of the Far Eastern Meat Association, and Sergey Shcherbakov, Deputy Chairman of the Primorye Chamber of Commerce and Industry. They all talked about the relationship between China and Russia, about mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries in the supply of agricultural products.
The current situation in the world market makes cooperation between Russian and Chinese companies mutually beneficial. As Pavel Kitaev told the RIA Vostok-Media correspondent, all Far Eastern meat processing enterprises operate mainly on foreign raw materials. About 90% of the meat comes from other countries. In connection with the embargo, a supply shortage has formed, which can be covered by Chinese meat. “Today, the total demand for raw materials from meat processing enterprises in the Far East is about 100 thousand tons per year, about half is pork,” Kitaev said. - Some part is covered by deliveries from Latin America. If we talk about the potential of the People's Republic of China, it is approximately 20-25 thousand tons per year. "
