GORKI, November 26 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev expects Russian agriculture to become one of the leading sectors of the world economy in the years to come and “no WTO will stop that”.
“I have lately felt proud when flying over the country in a helicopter, certainly over agrarian regions in the European part [of Russia] – Belgorod, Voronezh, Kursk. Everything is green and even, new machinery working in the fields, people smiling in villages,” Medvedev said at a meeting with regional journalists on Saturday, November 26.
He believes that “animal husbandry should be pulled up and then our agriculture will be among the leading sectors” and “no WTO will stop that—we have secured ourselves such terms for agriculture that will allow it to develop actively”.
In his opinion, the situation in the pig and poultry farming is already good, but there are problems in cattle farming. “This where we should concentrate our efforts,” he added.
Medvedev is confident that Russia “can create such agrarian system that will feed not only itself but also a considerable part of the world”, including China, “which will have food supply problems for a long time”, India and other Asia-Pacific countries.
