Alexander Subbotin: “Support of national producers under equal conditions of access to the EAEU market is our priority”

10/17/2019

This was stated by Alexander Subbotin, Member of the Board – Minister in charge of Industry and Agriculture of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) during his visit to the Rostselmash plant, the largest manufacturer of combine harvesters in the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). The event was also attended by representatives of the plant management and the government of the Rostov region.

Issues of ensuring equal conditions of access to the EAEU market for national manufacturers of farming equipment were discussed within the working session at the venue of Rostselmash Combine Plant.

“These issues are sensitive for manufacturers of farming equipment. We are ready to provide the EEC with a platform to discuss and develop a consolidated position,” Alexander Subbotin stressed.

During the visit, the Minister also inspected the company’s production sites: flexible technology complex, central logistics complex and expocomplex. Alexander Subbotin noted the high level of manufacturing processes at the plant.

The Minister suggested the “Rostselmash” management to pay attention to national manufacturers of components for farming equipment, which has already confirmed compliance with standards of the world’s leading agricultural manufacturers. This will increase the localization of farming equipment production at the enterprise as well as provide financial support measures for such products.
