Agriculture in Russian Federation: Policies, Issues and Results

Emilia Balan

Global Economic Observer, 2018, vol. 6, issue 1

Abstract: After 1990, shortly after the end of the communist era, Russia’s agriculture has entered into an ample process of transformation. The transition from centralized agriculture to a modern, competitive and sustainable agriculture has not come to an end yet, while in recent years the whole process faced a series of challenges posed by the various reforms and by the economic sanctions imposed by the U.E.-28, U.S. and other developed countries, starting with March 2014. The Russian Federation’s agriculture may represent an important sector for the world economy, due to the major potential of this sector even if this country is not yet in the top of the agrarian countries, because of the low contribution of this sector to the formation of national GDP. In this article we intend to analyse the agricultural policies developed by the Moscow Government over the last years, as well as make a brief presentation of the current situation of agriculture in the Russian Federation.
