TOMSK, February 11. /TASS/. Programs for import substitution in the key sectors of the Russian economy will be ready by April, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told the Ministry of Industry and Trade on Wednesday.

"We want to minimize our dependence on goods and services, including innovative, that we have been importing from abroad. We want to have broader innovation potential. The Ministry of Industry and Trade is now preparing programs for import substitution in the key sectors of the Russian economy. These programs will be ready by April," Dvorkovich said. It is important not only to create alternatives to foreign products, but also "to make a step forward in comparison with what we have and what we used to purchase," he added.

"It will not include all spheres. We have limited resources, and we have to choose priority directions. Several projects will be developed not only by ourselves, but jointly with partners — those partners whose products we will be substituting. That is, they want to leave at least some share in Russian products. Partners are mainly from Asia," Dvorkovich said.
