MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Russia’s level of agricultural production reached 3% per year, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with Russian television channels.
"Recently, just in the last few years - however, taking into account the decisions that we have made 10 years ago - we have been able to reach growth of agricultural production of 3% per year in a generally downward trend in the economy," Medvedev said.
The Prime Minister noted, that recently agriculture was either not developing at all or was "in the zero zone" of growth.
Medvedev noted that the current challenge is to develop export potential and to gain a foothold in foreign markets. "This is also very important, taking into account the need for inflow of foreign currency, and our export position in general," the Prime Minister said.
Medvedev also said that the next few years Russia will close all its needs in the food market.
"We are confident that in the coming years we will 100% close all our needs in the food market," Medvedev said.
