Government to Increase Provisions to Support Farming Equipment
On October 24, the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation considered the issue of agricultural support.
During the discussion of the draft budget for 2019-2021, Anton Siluanov, First Deputy Prime Minister, stated that «we have planned to provide 2 bln rubles to support farming machinery next year». He agreed that earlier there were more funds provided for this, namely more than 15 billion rubles, «but before it was mostly an anti-crisis measure of support.»
«However, we are ready to increase this amount with the second reading. The Ministry of Agriculture proposed this increase to amount up to 8 bln rubles,» the Minister of Finance said.
The issues of state support of agriculture and dairy industry will soon be discussed at the 5th International Agricultural Dairy Forum.
