At the sitting of the council for economic policy the governor of Yamal Dmitry Artyukhov told Nikolay Tsukanov, the envoy of the President of the Russian Federation in Ural Federal Okrug, about implementation of national projects. It was attended by heads of regions of Ural Federal Okrug, representatives of the Prosecutor General’s office of Russia, the Ministry of agriculture of Russia, the Russian export center, and the Academy of Sciences. They reviewed implementation of two national projects: “International cooperation and export” and “Small and medium-sized business and support for individual entrepreneurship”.
Dmitry Artyukhov spoke about implementation of the regional project “Export of products of agro-industrial complex of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug”. According to the press service of the head of the region, today enterprises of the region export products of reindeer husbandry to the European Union — meat, hides and by-products. The region certified four processing complexes in the settlements Yar-Salye and Nyda, at the trading stations Payuta and Yuribey. Until the end of the year it is planned to conduct certification of two others — in Tazovskiy and Antipayuta.
“The task of the national project — to increase twice the amount of export of agricultural products — will be fulfilled undoubtedly. Introduction of new slaughter complexes will assist to that”, the governor noted.
For the present day Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug has fulfilled more than half of the export plan for 2020. The amount made 270 tonnes of reindeer meat, as well as 29 tonnes of hides. In addition, the first consignment of non-food reindeer offal of category 3 in the amount of 15 tonnes was delivered to Germany. The target set for the year will be achieved through supplying abroad of products of reindeer husbandry obtained during the slaughter campaign.
Also at the sitting Dmitry Artyukhov suggested including production of reindeer hides in the list of branches entitled to compensation for costs of certification of products in foreign markets. For Yamal it is one of the most promising export branches.
