MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Russia is capable of strengthening its position as a grain exporter, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.
“Today the global demand for grain is a far more stable trend than the demand for energy,” Medvedev said at the Gaidar Forum in Moscow.
“Russia is one of the leading exporters of grain in the world and is capable of strengthening its positions, by promoting investment into the production process, as well as into agricultural processing and transportation,” Medvedev added.
Speaking about agriculture as a whole, Medvedev called import substitution in that industry one of the most important areas of development. Medvedev also reminded of the new edition of the state agricultural development program, under which meat, vegetable and fruit producers will get additional subsidies.
“I should add that Russian farmers are already showing decent results,” said Medvedev.
