The implementation of the national project «International cooperation and export» was discussed at the meeting with the manager of industrial and agrarian enterprises of the region.
According to the Governor, the economy of the region is facing tremendous tasks. It is unfeasible to attain these tasks without developing the export activities. Primarily, the region needs a development strategy for non-resource export. By 2024 its volume must grow from 4.7 billion up to 8.5 billion US dollars yearly.
– We need to remodel the mentality how to move to export. It is complex to export flour. Since other producers, for instance, make a special sort of flour tailored to each African country. However, enterprises are producers which make this product on a quality basis. And we are here to provide insights to them what product shall be produced and how to sell it for export. We need to establish a respective center for them that would be dealing with Kuban exporters in manual mode and also an individual program for financial support, as concluded Veniamin Kondratyev.
The Center should develop a specific mechanism of actions for enterprises, accumulate relevant information and support Kuban producers in bringing their product to export.
