The federal project “Export of products of agro-industrial complex” supposes increase in export amounts in monetary terms. Each region has its own indicator. Thus, Yamal should increase the export turnover up to 6 million 100 thousand US dollars in 2024.
At the present time three companies are certified in Yamal, according to the norms of the European Union: the municipal enterprise “Yamalskiye Oleni”, the enterprise “Payuta” and OOO “Vozrozhdeniye”. Reindeer meat from Yamal has been delivered to Europe since 2008. During 11 years more than 4 thousand tonnes of environmentally clean food product were sent to Sweden, Germany and Finland. Since last year the region has begun to develop a new promising direction – export of reindeer skins. The meat-processing complex “Payuta” delivered 5500 skins to Finland. This year all three certified enterprises of Yamal plan to export 13 thousand skins. The information was given to the news agency “Sever-Press” in the press-service of the governor of Yamal.
Currently, work on entry of Salekhard fish-processing plant to the Chinese market is being conducted, the company is in the process of certification. The focus will be placed on canned products, which, according to sociological studies, are most in demand in northern regions of China. It is planned to start deliveries in 2021.
Comprehensive work — technical re-equipment of the enterprises and extension of product assortment will be fulfilled to achieve the indexes of the regional project. Organizing of exhibitions, contests and tastings in Russia and abroad will assist to advancement of the regional brand in foreign markets. Successful practices already exist. During 16 years in a row Yamal participates in the prestigious agricultural exhibition “Green week” in Germany. Development of cooperation with China has been started recently – the region is actively exhibited within the Russian-Chinese EXPO.
The high cost of goods transportation is one of the problematic issues in development of exports. Russian organizations can receive compensation from the federal budget for export of products by railroad. But producers from Yamal do not have such opportunity — the region is not included in the list of recipients of this subsidy yet. Thus, it is planned to send suggestions on amendments to the current rules of cost compensation and inclusion of railroad stations of Yamal in the federal list to the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation.
