Russia Looks To Boost Exotic Fruit Imports From Sri Lanka Featured

24 February 2016

Ilya Shestakov, head of Russia's Federal Fisheries Agency, said during the first meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission for Trade and Economic and Scientific-Technical Research that Russia intends to increase both the assortment and volume of product purchases of Sri Lankan products.

A large portion of produce imported from the partner country is Sri Lankan tea, but the Russian market is interested in a large assortment of quality, exotic fruits and vegetables that will not threaten domestically grown and processed products, Shestakov said and added that efforts are being made by the Sri Lankan government to build cooperation and bilateral trade with Russia.

“Sri Lanka agreed to continue its cooperation with Russia in the agricultural sphere. Farmers of our republic very profitably supply not only fruits and vegetables but a number of other products to the Russian market during the winter,” Tennakoon Mudiyanselege, deputy minister of industry and trade of Sri Lanka, said.

Tennekun said that banana, mango, kiwi, pineapples and other exports to the Russian market are prospective opportunities for the country.
