Krasnodar, 19 September – Yug Times. Deputy Governor Andrei Korobka expounds the aims of the region’s agricultural complex, and explains what tools are provided to achieve them.

Q.: Krasnodar province takes part in a number of national projects, one of which – International cooperation and export – is directly related to the development of the agricultural complex. Would you explain in detail what tasks are being set in its framework?

A.: The national project, International cooperation and export, is aimed at substantial increase of the share of our products in international markets. In the nearest five years, the region’s annual exports are to reach USD 3.8 billion – at the expense of formation of new mass of commodities.

We think of this task first of all as a development stage for the regional agricultural complex. To fulfil it, we will have to significantly modernise the [agricultural] sector, achieve new [higher] production volumes, bring the quality of our products to the world’s standards, and build up logistics chains. I have no doubt that both manufacturers and consumers would win if it happens. The list of our products with a high export potential includes, naturally, crops, as well as fat-and-oil, starch and flour and cereals products. Speaking about these positions, I can say that we have good reserves to increase their production, guaranteed markets and growing demand.

Q.: What are the prospects for the export of fats and oils?

A.: Very good. Currently, the export of this product category is growing by 25% [annually]. To ensure the continuation of this positive dynamics, we will have to increase the production volumes of oil-bearing crops for subsequent processing. This is why, currently we are thoroughly reconsidering the structure of the areas under crops – and it would not be sunflower but other economically promising cultures, say, rapeseed. Its average cost efficiency is 77%, and it even reaches 100% at some farms.

Q.: Is there any financial support of export-oriented farms?

A.: Of course, national projects have financial support. In our case, it is subsidising of land improvement works. This year, 340 million roubles from the federal and regional budgets have been allocated for these activities. As a result, a number of new land reclamation projects must be put into operation, and many existing ones must be reconstructed. Besides, we have corrected the financial backup of the existing programs so that the export potential should be realised in other domains. For instance, it has been decided to assign additional money to support the confectionary industry.
