The Deputy Minister of Agriculture Sergey Levin had a working meeting with the Ambassador of the Republic of Iraq to the Russian Federation Abdulrahman Hamid Al-Husseini.
The parties discussed bilateral interplay in the agricultural sector, including prospects for further development of trade in agriproducts and food. According to Sergei Levin, Russia considers the Iraqi market as fairly promising in terms of extensive supplies of Russian grain, meat, dairy, oil & fat and confectionery products.
The accessibility of agricultural products to the markets of both countries was also in point. The Rosselkhoznadzor activities aimed resuming Russian wheat exports of to Iraq was appreciated much. In order to intensify cooperation the parties are about to establish a Russian-Iraqi working group encompassing Rosselkhoznadzor and Iraq Grain Chamber officers. Its pilot events are likely to be held this year.
Another important bilateral agricultural cooperation stage for the future may be joint agroindustrial investment projects.
