There are huge opportunities for Hungary agriculture in Russia said Rural Development Minister Sándor Fazekas while visiting the “Gyula” meat processing plant on Wednesday.

The minister remarked that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán held high level talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fyodorov during his recent visit to Moscow, about Hungary agricultural exports to Russia.

Fazekas announced that he visits Russia Sunday to take part in the opening of Prodexpo International Food and Beverage Expo in Moscow on Monday. During his visit he will hold talks with Russian Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fyodorov to review export related issues, examine further possibilities to improve bilateral relations and explore new market opportunities for the Hungarian agricultural sector.

Russia may be the savior of the Hungarian meat industry as the government won't allow the destruction of the Hungarian meat industry (by the European Union ed.).

Local governments spend 5.5 billion HUF on restructuring the Kaposvár, Pápa and Gyula meat processing plants so helping thousands of employees to keep their jobs.

The Hungarian agricultural sector increased its production substantially in the past two years said Fazekas. More and more companies are recognizing that Russian trade partners are reliable and they buy significant amount of quality food products, which is a great potential for the Hungarian meat industry said the agriculture minister.

Russia is our top trading partner, we have eliminated all trade barriers and administrative constraints that existed between the two countries; now, we are promoting Hungarian companies in Russia and constantly, exploring new market opportunities for Hungarian agricultural products said the minister.
