“We have the fastest growing agricultural economy, AIG (agricultural industrial complex). Here the rate of growth is high and the level of self-sufficiency is the highest compared to other industries. We already exceeded the bar of 80 percent and are approaching 90 percent,” according to a report by TASS, quoting Dvorkovich.
Regarding the processing of raw materials, the official said that “we have only just started filling the volume”. According to official data, the Russian market is still heavily dependent on imported fruits and vegetables. If Russia is to address these problems, it will be a matter of increasing storage facilities and increasing production of fruit and vegetable products, Dvorkovich said.
