Russia's grain export to exceed 40 million tonnes by 2020



The Ministry of Agriculture of Russia Federation expects grain exports to surpass 40 million tonnes per year by 2020, said Elena Skrynnik, Minister of Agriculture.


According to the minister, Russia intends to develop its logistics and infrastructure of the grain market. In particular, the ministry plans to increase the capacity of grain storage in the South, Siberia and the Far East. Russia needs to build linear, port elevators, and small storehouses for small farms, declared Skrynnik. For example, Novorossiysk port will substantially expand own storing capacities.


The export potential of the logistics supply chain by 2013 will total almost 30 million tonnes by building and upgrading facilities for cleaning, storing and shipping of grains.
