Agriculture in the Far East to Be Discussed at Eastern Economic Forum

25 August 2022
Перспективы сельского хозяйства Дальнего Востока обсудят на полях Восточного экономического форума

The prospects for agriculture in the Russian Far East will be discussed at one of the business programme sessions of the of the 7th Eastern Economic Forum, which will be held from 5 to 8 September in Vladivostok. Its participants will address the issues of agricultural self-sufficiency in the Russian Far East in today’s realities.

Speakers at the session ‘Agriculture: You Reap What You Sow’ include Artem Belov, General Director of the National Union of Milk Producers (Soyuzmoloko); Sergey Lakhtyukhov, General Director of the National Poultry Union; and Evgeny Shestyuk, General Director of Myasoopttorg. Other participants are Boris Maksimov, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the National Association of Equipment and Solutions Manufacturers for Land Reclamation; and Vladimir Sitnov, Senior Vice President of Sberbank. The session will be moderated by Denis Tsesarenko, founder of Teros LLC and Sporos LLC.

Today, the prerequisites for increasing production of all types of products exist, including the significant potential for putting agricultural land into circulation and a raw material base for developing oilseed processing and fodder production, which is the basis for the sustainable development of dairy and beef cattle breeding, as well as poultry farming. The Far East is able to feed itself. The natural and climatic conditions of the FEFD regions allow to produce almost all types of crops and agricultural products in general.

Participants in the session will determine whether the existing support measures for the industry allow for a multiple increase in production volumes, identify priority areas of the industry for each region of the Far Eastern Federal District, and discuss how to ensure the transfer of products between regions of the district and bring unused land into use at an accelerated rate. Special attention will be paid during the session to support measures to increase the level of agricultural self-sufficiency of the Far East.
