Russia eyes China for exports
Talks have begun between Russian and Chinese authorities in a move aimed at increasing exports from Russia to more than the current low volumes.

“Russia’s domestic production fully meets our local needs, providing g an opportunity for exports,” said Russian President Vladimir
Putin. “We are in the process of finishing talks with the Chinese government with a view to opening up their market for supplies of Russian poultry.”¡
