Deputy Prime Minister Viktoria Abramchenko, speaking at the opening ceremony, stressed that for two years the world economy has been under great pressure associated with the spread of coronavirus infection. “Despite these global challenges and risks, despite unfavorable weather conditions, our agro-industrial complex continues to be one of the key drivers for the development of the Russian economy. In particular, this year we will set records in several areas. First of all, I am talking about the collection of vegetables in winter greenhouses, rapeseed, berry products. Our livestock breeders and fishermen demonstrate good performance, ”said Viktoria Abramchenko.

She noted the importance of work to improve the quality of life of the rural population. “When we talk about setting production indicators, we must not forget about the comfortable living conditions of our villagers. This is another priority for us. We are talking primarily about the implementation of the state program “Comprehensive Development of Rural Areas”. This year we have increased funding for the program by 9.6 billion rubles with a total funding of 41 billion rubles, ”the Deputy Prime Minister said.

As part of the grand opening of the exhibition, the Deputy Prime Minister also presented state awards to the best workers in the industry.

According to the Minister of Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev, the level of technological development of the industry in Russia is one of the highest in the world, which, in particular, is demonstrated by the exhibition “Golden Autumn”. This has helped to show a steady pace of development of the agro-industrial complex over the past years, despite weather risks and a pandemic.

“This year the situation for the industry was extremely unfavorable – an emergency regime was introduced in 16 regions due to drought, rainstorms and other factors. The bad weather dealt the most serious blow to the plant breeders of the Volga and Central federal districts. Now farmers are fighting literally for every ton of products, making every effort to preserve the harvest of grain, oilseeds and other crops. I am sure that this great work will allow us to complete the year successfully and with worthy results in many areas, ”the minister emphasized.

He noted that more than 108 million tons of grain have been threshed to date, which is already significantly higher than the level of domestic consumption. “In general, we will collect a decent harvest this year, which will allow not only to meet domestic needs, but also to preserve the export potential. Also, according to our forecasts, we will get a good harvest of vegetables and reach a new level in the production of fruits and berries. A significant increase is planned for oilseeds and sugar beets, which will fully meet their own needs for sunflower oil and sugar. In addition, this year, positive dynamics remain in the production of meat and milk, in the food and processing industries. Therefore, the Russians can be sure that the food security of the country will be ensured in all key areas, ”said Dmitry Patrushev.

This year, the Golden Autumn exhibition is being held at a new site, in the Patriot Exhibition and Convention Center. More than 100 exhibitors take part in the main agricultural forum of the country, who demonstrate their products and developments in various thematic zones. As part of the business program, experts will discuss issues of state support for the industry, the development of agricultural education and science, organic production, viticulture and winemaking and other relevant topics. In addition, within the framework of the joint project of the Federation Council and the Ministry of Agriculture “Women in the Agro-Industrial Complex”, an open dialogue will take place on the issues of the women’s agenda in the agricultural sector.

The exhibition will continue to work until October 8 as part of the Week of the Agro-Industrial Complex – a series of congress and exhibition, fair, business and festive events organized by the Ministry of Agriculture and dedicated to the Day of the Worker of Agriculture and Processing Industry.
