Russia has called for increased agricultural product exports from the ASEAN region, according to local reports
Alexei Ulyukayev, Russian economic development minister, said, “I would like to draw your attention to the opportunities opening up for ASEAN countries to supply agricultural products to Russia, particularly fresh vegetables and fruit.
“We are familiar with the high quality standards of agricultural produce in these countries and we will welcome products such as nuts, beef, pork and poultry.”
According to reports, Russia-ASEAN trade turnover topped US$17.5bn in 2013.
“We expect a six per cent increase year-on-year at the end of 2014,” Ulyukayev added.
The minister also called on Russia and ASEAN countries to develop investment co-operation.
