Argentina Looks to Build Exports to Russia

The trade war with between Russia and the EU, US, Canada, Australia and Norway that has flared up because of sanctions imposed over the crisis in Ukraine was stepped up this week.

The Russian veterinary authority Rosselkhoznador seized batches of meat, poultry dairy products, eggs and honey that were discovered being imported into the country at border posts between Ukraine and Russia.

And a top level meeting has been taking place between the Russian authorities and Argentine officials with the view to replace meat and food products that have been banned by President Vladimir Putin’s import embargo.

In the talks Argentine Minister of Industry Deborah Giorgi said: “We can ensure the supply of a wide variety of Russian products of animal and vegetable origin.

“The volume of poultry meat production in Argentina is 700,000 tonnes per year, which gives the country the ninth largest production in the world in this product group.

“In addition, Argentina is ready to export poultry feed, vaccines and genetic resources.”

The trade delegation said indicated that Argentina is interested in obtaining a quota for poultry meat, previously provided by the European Union.

The head of Rosselkhoznador Sergei Dankvert said that there were mutual economic interests in developing cooperation and he said that Russia had always had better relationships over the supply of food from Latin America than from either the US or Europe, because subsidies do not distort the market.

On the prospect of Argentina increasing supplies of poultry meat to Russia, Mr Dankvert said that Argentina could supply more than half the amount that the US was exporting and he said that Rosselkhoznador would be ready as soon as possible to consider applications from Argentina to supply animal products.
