Moscow School of Management Skolkovo hosted a strategic session Agri-Logistics 2019. The focus of attention was on building an integrated agri-logistics infrastructure to promote Russian products in global markets and ensure national food security.

The session participants included VEB.RF’s Chairman Igor Shuvalov, Minister of Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev, Deputy Minister of Agriculture Oksana Lut, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Victor Evtukhov, Member of the Board (Minister) for Trade of the Eurasian Economic Commission Veronika Nikishina, Director General of Russian Export Center Andrey Slepnev, and representatives of businesses, government agencies, and expert organisations.

The participants addressed the issues of building an integrated agri-logistics and trade infrastructure to promote Russian products in global markets and ensure national food security. In particular, extensive work has to be done to modernise and expand the capacity of the railway and port infrastructure, build logistics centres, and reduce transportation costs for agricultural products.

VEB.RF’s Chairman Igor Shuvalov said: “We need to develop the market infrastructure. We need to offer our people a greater variety of quality food products at more affordable prices. Producers would be able to more efficiently deliver and sell their products in both the national and international markets. We need to learn to establish mutually beneficial relations both within the Eurasian Economic Union and with our other partners. We see our goal in building a competitive global logistics infrastructure in partnership with market participants.”

“Infrastructure development is imperative to accomplish the task of increasing annual agricultural exports to 45 billion US dollars set by the President. We need to work out the most optimal configuration of routes for national products to reach foreign markets.   As practice shows, it is often easier to manufacture goods rather than to deliver the required amount of goods of the required quality to ultimate consumers. We offer VEB.RF to conduct joint expert examination of the agricultural projects to be delivered with the involvement of development institutions,” Dmitry Patrushev said.

VEB.RF, REC and Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade Sign Memorandum on Joint Efforts to Design Integrated Export Promotion System

Summing up the 2018 results at the final session of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade Board, the Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, VEB.RF’s Chairman Igor Shuvalov and Director General of Russian Export Center Andrey Slepnev signed a memorandum.

The Integrated Export Promotion System is designed to accomplish two major tasks, i.e. to increase the quality of services due to the introduction of uniform standards, and make all export support measures available in a one-stop shop covering over 100 foreign countries and 85 Russian constituent entities.   

“Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade, VEB.RF and REC have entered into an agreement to benefit from their shared experience, capabilities, resources and infrastructure and provide Russian exporters with efficient support, primarily, in the context of the Integrated Export Promotion System, which is being rolled out in the Russian constituent entities and abroad,” Denis Manturov said.

The initiative to combine international and regional export promotion services under REC’s umbrella has been earlier announced by VEB.RF’s Chairman Igor Shuvalov.

“The system would encourage Russian businesses to export their products and create a consistent demand for domestic goods and services in foreign markets. At this point, the engagement of the Ministry of Industry and Trade with its expertise in devising and introducing best practices of export promotion is pivotal.   It would be reasonable for the exporters seeking backing from VEB.RF or other development institutions to first apply to REC, which would assess their export potential and the need for such backing,” Igor Shuvalov said. 

In May 2018, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin assigned the task to increase non-resource exports to 250 billion US dollars a year including 45 billion US dollars of agricultural products.

“The Integrated Export Promotion System, which is now being created by REC, VEB.RF and the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade in compliance with national and federal projects, provides for the integration of existing export promotion mechanisms, including the functional capabilities of VEB.RF and such development institutions and associations as RSMB Corporation, Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, OPORA RUSSIA All-Russian Public Organisation of Small and Medium Business, regional Export Support Centres, and Russian trade missions abroad,” Andrey Slepnev said.

Joint offices of REC, VEB.RF and trade missions are to become the backbone of the system’s global network. Russian Export Center will ensure overall coordination between the joint offices offering Russian exporters various measures of support.

Primarily, such integrated system is designed to assist Russian exporters and foreign buyers of Russian products in choosing relevant partners and participating in exhibitions, fairs and business missions, provide projects with financial and non-financial backing, offer Russian exporters and foreign buyers of Russian products analytical and advisory services, and overcome any hurdles in delivering joint projects.

In the near future, the business process participants intend to execute the documents required to approve interaction procedures including those pertaining to the one-stop shop information service.

Joint offices will be set up in Turkey, Vietnam, Singapore, Germany and other countries.

REC’s Support for Non-resource Non-energy Exports Reaches 18.7 billion US Dollars in 2018

On 16 April the House of the Russian Government hosted a meeting of the Board of Directors of Russian Export Center (REC) chaired by VEB.RF’s Head Igor Shuvalov. 

Key topics on the meeting agenda included approving REC’s management report for 2018 and corporate key performance indicators for 2019 (export financing provided by REC, number of exporters using REC’s services, etc.).

“REC group of companies allocated 18.7 billion US dollars for non-resource non-energy exports in 2018, demonstrating considerable growth as compared to 2017 (14.4 billion US dollars). Last year we supported 10,000 exporters, who applied to REC for financial assistance,” REC’s Director General Andrey Slepnev said.

«A strategic end-to-end goal of all development institutions – VEB, REC, RSMB Corporation, DOM.RF – is to support such projects, which are aimed at creating new production facilities, new goods and services, and have great export opportunities. Before providing a loan or assistance in any other form, we should study whether such services can be in demand in foreign markets. Through our concerted efforts, we can achieve an ambitious goal of increasing exports set by the May presidential decree. REC, as a relevant institution, is to play a pivotal role in accomplishing the national development objectives,” Igor Shuvalov said.

Andrey Slepnev also emphasised that all the targets of the national project International Cooperation and Exports are ambitious enough, therefore development institutions including REC face new exciting challenges to be taken on to carry out the project.

REC’s Head additionally noted another principal task: designing an integrated export promotion system in regions and abroad.

“By the end of 2020 the integrated export promotion system is expected to cover 52 countries potentially interested in Russian exports. The system is designed to consolidate instruments offered by all development institutions and government support measures,” Andrey Slepnev commented.
