SKOPJE, February 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Development of cooperation between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Macedonia in agriculture is in the interest of both sides, Macedonia’s Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Supply Lyupcho Dimovski said in an interview with Itar-Tass on Friday.
“Russia for us is a friendly state and an important economic partner, where the cooperation potential is not used fully yet,” he said. “We are interested in accessing the Russian Federation’s regional markets and are ready to offer natural products of higher quality.”
The minister stressed that “Macedonian agricultural producers are interested in supplying their goods to the Russian market, and our task is to assist them.”
“In mid-February of this year I plan to meet with Russia’s Minister of Agriculture Elena Skrynnin to discus optimal ways of improving mutually beneficial cooperation between our countries,” he continued. “In the framework of the Prodexpo-2012 international exhibition in Moscow, where Macedonian leading producers will present our best wines, we plan to attract attention to them from the Russian side.”
Dimovski said that “it is also necessary to attract Russian capital to the Republic of Macedonia to organise major trade centres for purchasing, packing and transporting agricultural products to the Russian Federation.”
“Having got Russian investors interested, we shall provide for them transparency of the entire production cycle, which would become a guarantee of its quality,” the minister said.
