Deputy Prime Minister Alexei Gordeyev met with the President of the Rosspetsmash Association Konstantin Babkin.

 

The head of the association informed Alexey Gordeev about the situation in the Russian agricultural machinery industry and about the prospects for the development of the industry.

According to Konstantin Babkin, the production of agricultural machinery in Russia has been growing over the past years. This is due to the improvement of the quality of technology, the release of new models, the introduction of innovations and effective programs of state support. The share of Russian technology in the domestic market today is 56%. Another 7-8 years the figure did not exceed 30%.

The meeting noted the success of domestic manufacturers of agricultural machinery. Participants said that Russian agriculture still needs modernization. It is necessary not only to maintain the pace of production, but also to increase them.

The government’s activities are aimed at creating equal conditions for competition between Russian and foreign manufacturers of agricultural equipment, at increasing the share of domestic enterprises in the domestic market and deepening localization.
