Belarus plans to increase food supplies to Africa, told the head of main department of foreign economic activity of the Ministry of Agriculture Alexei Bogdanov 8 November at the opening of the international exhibition "Prodexpo 2016» in Minsk.
At the same time, he noted that "the Russian market has always been, is and will be the main one, where we have a high consumer loyalty, Belarusian goods are known and loved". "At the same time, the Russian Federation is increasing its own production, and we need to think about where we will deliver our products. First and foremost, these are countries of the far arc (Southeast Asia, Africa, and others). Therefore, we actively implement the export strategy up to 2020 year "30 / 30 / 30" - 30% to Russia, 30% to Europe, 30% to other countries. It's not an easy task - to enter new markets and consolidate them, but for this we are working, "Bogdanov said.
According to him, the Belarusian delegation recently returned from South Africa and Mozambique. "There are discussed questions of deliveries of our products (milk powder, frozen beef, poultry), as well as projects for the construction of dairy complex, plant, vegetable stores," - said the head of department.
Bogdanov said that it is planned to maintain the volume of exports in dollar terms at least at the level of last year. "It is not easy, the price level fell to 30%. We have increased deliveries in kind of meat on 17%, milk - by 4%. According to operative data, the level of exports in value terms in the first ten months amounted to 99,3% YoY. I think that by the end of the year it will exceed 100 2015% to the level of the year, when it amounted to 4,6 billion dollars ", - said the representative of the Ministry of Agriculture.
