The Breadbasket of the Asia Pacific: Increasing Food Exports from the Far East
5 September 2019
11:30—13:00

The agricultural industry in the Far Eastern Federal District has benefited from the substantial land resources offered by the region. These include more than 4 million hectares of arable land, 1.4 million hectares of fallow land, and proximity to the markets of East and Southeast Asia, which together have a population of more than 2.5 billion. In terms of production and export, agricultural goods make up a crucial sector for the Russian Far East. The value of agricultural goods produced in the region in 2018 was estimated at RUB 234 billion, or 5% of Russia’s total. In order to reach the target of USD 45 billion worth of exports per year by 2024, and also to reduce the Far East’s food dependency, the aforementioned available land resources need to be fully leveraged. What needs to be done to cultivate all potential land? How can barriers currently hindering agricultural exports be removed in order to meet international trade targets? What pathways exist to solving issues related to transportation, storage, and transhipment of agricultural products? What projects will be able to claim immediate support from the government? What products will be most in demand on the domestic and international markets? What kind of environment needs to be created in the Russian Far East for investors and trading partners from the Asia Pacific? What can be done to build effective sales channels to Asia-Pacific markets for goods produced in the Far East?
