The meeting of the Russian section of the working group on trade, industry and investments of the Russian-Indonesian Joint Commission

The meeting of the Russian section of the working group on trade, industry and investments of the Russian-Indonesian Joint Commission on Trade, Economic and Technical Cooperation took place on July 13, 2017.

Welcome speech was made by Ye. N Popov, the Director of Department for Asia, Africa and Latin America of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation. During the meeting the following issues were discussed: access of agricultural products to the markets, cooperation in the field of peaceful use of atomic energy, promotion of projects in aeronavigation with participation of AO «Azimut», as well as existing barriers for exporting of Russian power equipment.

During the meeting of the working group the representatives of federal executive authorities and a number of companies made reports.

During the meeting of the section addressing access of agricultural products to the markets of Indonesia the presentations were made by the Assistant to the Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Vasily Lavrovsky and Director of the FGBI «Grain Quality Assessment Center» Yulia Korolyova.

In her report Yulia Korolyova spoke about export volume in 2016/2017 to Indonesia. Within the said period the wheat export amounted to 360 thousand tons, and of coriander seeds — 9 thousand tons. She also named the main ports dispatching the products — Novorossiysk Port and Caucasus Port of the Krasnodar Krai.

As it is known in the beginning of 2015 the regulation on control of safety of imported and exported fresh plant products was approved by the Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Indonesia. According to this regulation, importing countries which did not succeed in official authorization of their food safety systems and in registration of the testing laboratories cannot get permission on import of fresh plant products including grain products to Indonesia.

Thanks to Rosselkhoznadzor’s efforts in October 2016 the Agricultural Quarantine Agency under the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Indonesia approved the Decree on registration of three Russian laboratories involved into testing of grain and grain product quality and safety (testing laboratories of Novorossiysk and Rostov branches of the FGBI «Grain Quality Assessment Center» and testing laboratory of FGBI «Grain Quality Assessment Center» in Ramenskoye). In December 2016 the Primorsky branch of the FGBI «Grain Quality Assessment Center» was also registered.

The resumption of Russian product export including wheat export into the Republic of Indonesia after complete export stop in November 2015 can be called one of the basic achievements. Moreover the export volume in 2016/2017 amounted to 369 thousand tons.
