While today we deliver products equal to $150 million, our capabilities are $1 billion. As you know, China not simply opens its market, this market is fully quoted. We have the opportunity to increase the export of our agricultural products to $1 billion, this will also lead to an increase in agriculture productivity,” the Prime Minister commented on the issue. He further added, that a goal to increase the production of the agro-industrial complex by 2,5 times was set until 2022.
