OPERATING RESULTS OF THE AGRO-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX FOR LENINGRAD REGION DISCUSSED AT EXPOFORUM

On April 17, a meeting was held among the heads of organisations and enterprises in the agro-industrial and fisheries complex of Leningrad Region. Experts discussed operating results for 2016, as well as the targets and prospects for industry growth in 2017.

Participants were addressed by Roman Markov, First Deputy Chairman of the Leningrad Regional Government: “For Leningrad Region, agriculture continues to be an engine of economic growth. It’s gratifying to see that the state support programme for agriculture isn’t just being spared from cuts, but is actually being expanded. The government is introducing new support measures, which allows the entire agrarian sector to look towards the future with confidence and know that the state will be there to help and lend a hand. We are the main food producers in the Russian Northwest – the region is responsible for more than 37% of the gross agricultural output in the Northwestern Federal District.”

The region’s agricultural sector fully satisfies consumer demand on the regional market in terms of dietary staples – milk, meat, eggs, potatoes and vegetables. In Leningrad Region, total agricultural output volume across all sectors amounted to RUB 90 bln in 2016. The agro-industrial complex of Leningrad Region is among its four most investment-attractive sectors – at present, roughly 45 investment projects worth a total of more than RUB 35 bln are being implemented or under active planning.

Within the scope of the meeting, four agreements were signed on the development of new sectoral projects and the creation of special conditions for the expansion of production and the acquisition of rural housing. At the conclusion of the event, an official ceremony was held where the Ministry of Agriculture presented awards to workers in the agro-industrial complex, and ExpoForum Industrial was recognised at the Agrorus exhibition, which for more than 25 years now has been making a significant contribution to the sector’s development.

In the ExpoForum concourse, more than 55 companies in the agro-industrial sector were also on display, including SevZapAgro, Agroliga and Amkodor Severo-Zapad. They took the opportunity to showcase their different fertilisers, grain-cleaning equipment, feed-preparation tools, and much more. VTB, Rosselkhozbank and Sberbank, supporting the industry with a wide array of services, held a presentation of their respective products.
