It is remarkable that the World Farmers Organization chose exactly the stand of Yamal as a place for the meeting. The president of the World Farmers Organization (WFO) Theo de Jager notes that the results of workers in the Russian Arctic are impressive and deserve respect.

This is an example for many people. He expressed the wish to study experience of the Russian colleagues.
As the governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitry Kobylkin notes, the authorities will continue policy of transfer of Arctic agro-industrial complex to deep processing of reindeer meat and fish. “The road map” exists, and it also supposes equipping basic capacities with modern complexes. Demand for environmentally friendly products from Yamal is marked both in domestic and foreign markets. Such dynamics will allow enterprises and private reindeer herders to develop further.

“Green week” is a unique platform for farmers of the world to demonstrate their best products to consumers. And Russia has something to surprise. It is important for the Russian side that the Congress will take place exactly in Russia.
