Levin: the weakening of the ruble will help the Russian exporters


The weakening of the ruble has support for Russian exporters of agricultural products and increases the competitiveness of domestic goods

This was stated by state Secretary, Deputy head of the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation Sergey Levin. "The weaker ruble helps exporters, it has a positive impact on the competitiveness of domestic agricultural products, increasing the attractiveness of Russian food", said Levin in the margins of the Agricultural forum of Russia.

"This revenue growth, earnings of the country, the impetus for further development of production and the creation of new jobs", — he added.

The state Secretary also recalled the expansion of markets for Russian products. "There is a diversification of the domestic supply of food. Deliveries of Russian goods to China almost caught up with the supply of our traditional buyer – Turkey. Other major customers are Kazakhstan, South Korea, and Egypt", — said Sergey Levin.

Recall that in late April, the head of the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation Alexander Tkachev said that the best export of agricultural products from Russia is the dollar at 60-65 rubles.
