MOSCOW, August 23. /TASS/. Russia will reduce food imports in 10 years if it continues to expand domestic production, Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev told Rossiya 24 TV channel on Sunday.
"If we maintain the same pace of growth not only in monetary terms, but also in goods production, along the same roadmap, if we spend money proceeding from our capabilities, saving money and, of course, taking into account the crisis and the current situation in the world and in the country - then in 10 years we will fulfill this task, the political task. But if we try and really find additional reserves - first of all, financial - we will be able to fulfill this task in five, maximum seven, years," he said.
"Russia can produce almost everything domestically, with the only exceptions being citrus fruits, bananas, date palms - that is, what does not grow on our land due to natural environment," Tkachev concluded.
