Belarusian potato export to skyrocket in 2011-2015

In 2011-2015 Belarus plans to increase potato export by 14 times to $200 million, the press service of the Belarusian Agriculture and Food Ministry told BelTA as they commented on the 2011-2015 state rural development program.

In the current five-year term Belarus plans to export 170% more meat and meat products to a total of $1.840 billion, with the export of milk and dairy products up by 110% to $2.780 billion. Belarus plans to export $250 million worth of fruits and vegetables, 150% up, $105 million worth of processed fruits and vegetables, 300% up, $124 million worth of vegetable oils, 70% up, $670 million worth of sugar and confectionery products made of sugar, 70% up. As a result, the surplus of Belarus’ foreign trade in agricultural products and food is expected to reach $4 billion in 2015, with the agricultural export at $7.2 billion.

Import will be optimized by reducing the import of certain commodities (protein and other fodder additives, fruits, vegetables and products made thereof, vegetable oils, tobacco products) and by stepping up commodity exchange on the agrarian market within the framework of integration institutions (the Union State of Belarus and Russia, EurAsEC, the Single Economic Space).

To attract additional investments, processing enterprises, service enterprises, and construction enterprises, which are located in the countryside and participate in the program, will be exempted from having to pay fees to innovation funds for construction services, repair and construction services, special services and installation services they provide in rural areas. These enterprises will be also exempted from paying local fees for getting permissions to build or rebuild facilities as part of the program. They will be exempted from payments for the right to sign land rent contracts.

In the new five-year term conditions will be created to enable effective operation of Belarusian agricultural enterprises and to reduce the share of state support in the cost of the gross product of Belarusian agriculture year after year, said the source
