Armenian minister urges local companies to step up efforts for winning new Russian markets

YEREVAN, August 8 / ARKA /. Armenian Minister of Agriculture Sergo Karapetyan urged today heads of local food and agricultural companies to step up their efforts for winning new markets across Russia after Moscow’s ban on imports of foods from EU and USA.

During a meeting today with representatives of these companies the minister called on exporters to strengthen ties with the Russian Federation also in view of the forthcoming accession of Armenia to the Eurasian Economic Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. 

"We need to intensify our cooperation with Russia, in particular, to expand exports of all kinds of agricultural products, fruits and vegetables, especially now after the Russian Federation has banned the import of a wide range of food products from many European countries, Moldova, Ukraine, and the United States," said the minister. 

According to him, Armenian producers have a good chance now to increase dramatically exports of Armenian wines, juices, drinking water, fruits and vegetables, canned food, dairy and meat products to Russia. 

"We need to send to Moscow and other major Russian city our representatives to specify on the ground the demand for Armenian-made produces and sign contracts,” Karapetyan said. 

The minister emphasized also the importance of the participation of Armenian companies in food  exhibitions held in the Russian Federation, saying one is slated for October 8 -11.  -0-
