Russia: Putin discusses non-oil exports with economic development council

Russian Federation, Moscow
November 25, 2016 at 09:30 GMT +00:00 · Published

Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed non-oil exports and measures to improve the environmental situation as he chaired a meeting of the Presidential Council for Strategic Development and Priority Projects in Moscow, Friday.

Putin set the challenging task to Russian ministers and officials "to create a complex set of long-term mechanisms and instruments, which, in essence, will create a new framework for joint work of business, government, and non-governmental organizations in the field of environment and development of exports."

Russia's acting Economic Development Minister Yevgenii Yelin supported Russian President's approach by talking about the project proposal prepared in cooperation between Industry Ministry, Agriculture Ministry and the Export Centre within the International Cooperation and Exports program. According to Yelin, as the result of the implementation of this proposal Russian industry can expect 'the growth of non-oil, non-energy export by no less than seven percent per year'. The cost of the proposed project would be 33.8 billion rubles (€ 4.91 billion) in 2017.

Yevgenii Yelin took the position of Acting Head of the Economic Development Ministry after the former Minister Aleksei Ulyukaev was put under house arrest when he was charged with accepting a bribe of USD 2mn (€1,863,559). According to investigators, he received the money after his ministry had approved the deal on Rosneft's takeover of the major regional oil company Bashneft.
