Tajik Fruit, Vegetable Products Could Help Replace Banned Turkish Supplies Featured

04 December 2015

Director of the Institute of Contemporary Economics Nikita Isayev discussed his certainty regarding Tajikistan's ability to increase exports of products that were previously supplied by Turkey during the ninth Tajik-Russian Conference on Regional Cooperation. Isayev considers Russia and Tajikistan to be important partners in the trade industry.

Tajik exporters are sending large assortment of various fruits and vegetables to the Russian market. The bulk of these exports consist of persimmons, apples and grapes.

This year from September to October, Tajikistan exported 300 tonnes of fruit and vegetable products.

In total, according to Isayev, quoting official stats of Russia's Federal Customs Service, over the course of nine months the Russian market received as much as US $1.9 million of produce and raw materials from Tajikistan. January to September, total shipments to Russia were 44.7 percent more than the same period in 2014.

“It is a very high indicator, but it's important to understand that we have large reserves to increase these numbers,” Isayev said.

Supplies to the Russian market between January and September amounted to 26.7 percent of Tajikistan's total exports, whereas last year it amounted to 25.5 percent. Trade turnover amounted to US $928.3 million, an increase of 21.8 percent on the previous year.
