Russia is set to increase its export of agricultural products to China, as reports the press centre of the Russian Ministry of Agriculture, following the meeting between its head Dmitry Patrushev and Chinese Minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs Han Changfu.
The key topic of the talks was to open the Chinese market for more types of agricultural products made in Russia.
The country may very soon start exporting a wide range of livestock goods to our neighbour, including poultry and dairy, boosting trade between the countries. Recently, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance and the General Administration of Customs in China signed protocols on veterinary and sanitary requirements for mutual supplies of frozen poultry and dairy.
There are also plans to export beetroot pulp and oil cakes to China. Export agreements for oil and butter products, confectionery products, and honey were likewise signed. Russia’s Chinese partners expressed their interest in increasing the import of Russian soya (international customers placed new commercial offers for soya on the B2B-export.com platform).
