He noted that the Russian Federation now develops basically only North Africa, whereas in this region there are many countries that consume large amounts of food.
"For example, Nigeria is a very large market. Yes, a lot of countries, the same as Uganda. But we don't know these markets as yet, we have to learn and to provide its presence there", - said the Deputy head of the Ministry of agriculture.
"In Africa, of course, very strong competition with the French, especially in the Western part. Because these markets are the French traditionally consider their own. But we are there and good competitive advantages on the part of the logistics will work," he concluded.
