Agriculture

Considering the entry of Russian to the WTO, the main task of the regional agriculture is to modernise production to give our enterprises a competitive advantage. The Regional Government participates in this process by subsidising investment loans interest rates. Last year, about RUB 115 m, or each fifth rouble of the sector budgetary support, were allocated for that purpose (RUB 23.7 m from the regional budget and RUB 91.1 m from the federal budget).

Thanks to modernised pork production, the share of local meat products in the overall regional consumption keeps increasing and was 19.3% at the end of the year (17.0% in 2011).

Over RUB 600 m in total were allocated for state support of the regional agriculture (RUB 153.8 m from the federal budget and RUB 447.6 from the regional budget).
