The agriculture in

Last Friday, the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia held the board meeting which discussed the main results of the Ministry’s activities in 2016th, and the goals and objectives for 2017th. The event was attended by the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev, his Deputy Arkady Dvorkovich, heads of ministries and departments of constituent entities of the Russian Federation, regional governments of agriculture complexes, industry unions and associations, scientists, and experts.

Dmitry Medvedev drew attention to the fact that he participated in the meeting of the Board of the Ministry for the first time: «In this regard, the government leaders does not spoil the ministry with visits. Why did I do it? I want to just say: in order to once again emphasize attention to agriculture from the state». According to the prime minister agrarian sector is developing steadily and last year, the growth of agricultural production exceeded 4%. While there is every opportunity not only to maintain but also increase the accumulated pace of growth.

«Agriculture in recent years demonstrated very good development and, what to hide, has received unprecedented amounts of state support, which the agrarian sector never had in the modern history of the Russian Federation.  In 2016th only the implementation of the state program, we sent 223 billion rubles, said in a speech, Dmitry Medvedev.  We are waiting for the results from each invested ruble. What are these results? It is a rich selection of high quality and reasonable price products, high revenues from exports, which are also very important, and the third direction is people: it is important that people in the countryside live no worse than in the city».

A report at the board meeting was made by the Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation Alexander Tkachev. Among the aims and problems that the head of the Ministry of Agriculture paid attention to was the issue related to the African swine fever. «It is necessary to solve together the main task  to defeat ASF because the losses that we have in the country today are incredibly high. For ten years we lost about million pigs. Losses amount to tens of billions of rubles. Of course, this is unacceptable», the minister said.
