Krasnodar, 31 March. The Viticulture and Winemaking Competence Centre will reportedly open in Anapa. City Mayor Vasili Shvets announced this initiative last week, during his meeting with local farmers, also attended by officers of the regional Ministry of Agriculture and bank executives. The meeting was held at the Anapa Agricultural College which will become the basis for the new Centre. According to Mr. Shvets, viticulture will continue to develop fast in the resort city, which is why it will need competent young professionals. It is the Competence Centre that will help resolve this issue.
Staff shortage in the agricultural sector, including viticulture, was one of the main topics of discussion.
“In addition to being a resort, Anapa is a farming area,” Mr. Shvets noted. “I want to advance to a new, more serious level in this direction.”
The Farmers’ Union of Anapa was also founded last week in the city. Commenting on this initiative, Mayor Shvets asked the farmers to establish a supervisory council and invite there most famous and competent professionals, “so that the Union may prudently and correctly schedule its activities.”
