MOSCOW, April 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called for creating a comprehensive system to support Russian products in international markets.
The system should integrate all possibilities of the financial, diplomatic, information and legal support for companies, Putin said at an expanded meeting of the board of the Ministry of Economic Development on Monday, April 23.
“We should learn to help business overcome unfair competition and quickly and effectively identify the barriers that other countries build unjustifiably against Russian companies, which still happens,” he said.
In addition, inter-governmental commissions and Russia’s trade missions abroad should work harder in order to promote Russian goods and services in other countries.
In his opinion, these organisations have learned to work with big projects but are not always open to small and medium-sized business.
Earlier, President Dmitry Medvedev said he would ask the Foreign Ministry to instruct the Russian embassies and trade missions abroad to assist Russian grain companies in making their way to world markets.
Russian Grain Union President Arkady Zlochevsky suggested that Russian embassies and trade missions abroad help move Russian grain to international markets.
Zlochevsky said Russian companies are facing big problems as they are returning to foreign markets.
“We need help: upon return to world market, we encountered tremendous difficulties, the main of which being that competitors have already taken up our place and they did so using political instruments. They have engaged all means - governmental, political, embassies and trade missions - in order to push their products to foreign markets,” he said.
“We ask you to give an order that embassies and trade missions help us regain our place in the sun which we once occupied,” Zlochevsky said, speaking to Medvedev.
