BUENOS AIRES, August 15,/ITAR-TASS/. Argentine exporters visualise good prospects for an increase in deliveries of food to Russia. Some of them will be members of an official Argentine government delegation who will hold talks in Moscow next week with Rosselkhoznadzor (Federal Service for Veterinary and phytosanitary Supervision) chief Sergey Dankvert.
Daniel Funes de Rioja, chairman of the Coordinating group of food industry sectors, told Argentina's government agency Telam on Thursday, "We see a very specific possibility which must be taken advantage of".
At the same time, he emphasized the importance of the Argentine government's giving all-round support to exporters in this respect. It is not fortuitous that the delegation heading for Mocow includes Argentina's Deputy Foreign Minister Carlos Bianco, Minister of Industry Debora Giorgi, as well as officials of Economics and Agriculture Ministries.
For his part, Miguel Paulon, President of the Dairy Industry Center, told Telam that due to the situation that has taken shape Argentina may "boost the overall export of the dairy industry output by 20% He said, "All companies of the (dairy industry) sector receive a lot of requests from Russia's private operators and importers, who are interested in the deliveries of cheese, oil, and instant skimmed milk poweder.''
In reply to the actions of the West, Russia introduced a full ban for one year on the deliveries of vegetables, fruit, nuts, beef, pork, poultry meat, cheeses, milk, fish, as well as products from them from European Union countries, the United States, Australia, Canada, and Norway.
Experts note that in this situation, Latin America exporters find themselves in an advantageous position, among them those in Argentina who, in their turn, are ready to boost the supply of their farm produce to Russia.
A session of the Russo-Argentine intergovernmental commission (IGC) on trade, economic, scientific and technical cooperation is due to be held in Moscow from September 14 to 15.
