The Russian government will continue the program to stimulate the production of domestic equipment for the food industry.
“Of course, it is necessary to stimulate the production of all absolutely possible options that are necessary for production, processing – in Russia. I hope that we will continue this program. The relevant instructions will be given to the Ministry of Industry and Trade,” Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said at a meeting with individual program of socio-economic development of the Republic of Mari El for 2020-2024.
He recalled that the government subsidizes equipment manufacturers to ensure that the cost for domestic buyers is adequate.
In particular, he noted that the program provides for subsidizing discounts on Russian equipment for the food and processing industries.
“The mechanism is very well built. First of all, it gives you the opportunity, by concluding a contract, to transfer all the troubles associated with administrative registration to the manufacturer, and the manufacturer takes care of everything, shall we say, the necessary measures related to this design”, – the prime minister noted.
Mishustin emphasized that the production of equipment for the food industry will continue to develop, including continuing work to reduce dependence on imports.
