More Moldovan Fruit and Veg Exporters Will be Allowed to Ship to Russia in 2020

In 2020, the number of fruit and vegetable companies allowed to export to the Russian market will increase from 130 to 350. Also, more goods will be exported to the Russian market without customs duties.

These are the results of the visit to Moscow of Agriculture Minister Ion Perju, who is also the co-chair of the Moldovan-Russian Intergovernmental Commission for Trade-Economic Cooperation.

These results were not reported by the Ministry of Agriculture, but by the head of state, Igor Dodon.

“Ion Perju informed me of the results of his recent visit to Moscow, during which he held a meeting with his Russian counterpart, the co-chairman of the Moldovan-Russian Commission, Dmitry Patrusev,” said Igor Dodon on his Facebook page.

Another result of the visit is the increase in the number of transport authorizations that Russia will grant to carriers from the Republic of Moldova, which is being set at 16,000.

Ion Perju informed the head of state that he asked the officials of the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance to inspect an additional 33 wineries and four canning companies in order to grant them access to the Russian market.
