Last year, Russia set a record for non-resource non-energy exports to China. It grew to $ 16.3 billion, which is 13 percent more than a year earlier. This was reported with reference to the data of the Federal Customs Service (FCS) in the organization “National Priorities”, writes “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”.
The supply of food helped to set the maximum, despite the situation with the coronavirus pandemic. First of all, flour, children’s pasta in the form of an alphabet, granola. In addition, tinctures of maral and reindeer antlers, as well as dietary supplements, are in demand.
In 2020, beef supplies increased 4.5 times, with rapeseed, poultry, sunflower oil and sweets growing significantly. On the last point, the growth was 21 percent, more than 80 thousand tons of sweets were sold.
The national project “International Cooperation and Export” speaks of the need to increase the export of non-primary non-energy goods by 2030 by 70 percent by 2020.
An earlier survey of Russian enterprises conducted by the Central Bank showed that, in their opinion, it is possible to seriously increase the supply of Russian products abroad only through structural changes in the economy. The reason for this was the unsuitability of their products in terms of price-quality ratio, and also indicated that they could not do without modernization through the purchase of foreign equipment.
