In Primorsky Krai more than 50 agricultural enterprises with foreign capital

More than 50 agricultural enterprises with foreign capital are currently operating in Primorsky Krai. The main investors are the Republic of Korea and China. Enterprises are engaged in the production of agricultural products most in demand in the region: rice, maize for grain, soy, vegetables and potatoes. About this RIA PrimaMedia told the deputy director of the regional department of agriculture and food of Primorsky Territory Denis Bochkarev.

The agency's interlocutor also noted that the livestock sector is developing at these enterprises. For example, along with the already established production of pork, in foreign enterprises the number of cattle and milk production is increasing.

- Until now, the production of agricultural products in Primorye was limited only to the needs of Russia's domestic market, using only 50% of arable land. After entering the foreign market (since 2011, supplies of corn and soybeans to Korea and China are underway), the agro-industrial complex of the region has a significant growth potential, "said Denis Bochkarev.

He also noted that the Primorsky Krai administration has formed proposals on the participation of foreign partners in the agricultural investment projects being implemented, as well as on the creation of modern production facilities in Primorsky Krai.

Recall that the share of own production of vegetables in Primorye planned to bring to 80%. To this end, modern winter greenhouses and vegetable stores are being built in the region, which will be equipped with a modern microclimate maintenance system. Also, the Department of Agriculture and Food reported that in the short term Primorye needs for poultry meat will be closed. After that, the region plans to increase production volumes for the delivery of the product to neighboring regions.
