Skopje, 15 September 2017 (MIA) - Twenty tons of food products from four Macedonian companies make up the first shipment that has started to move Friday from Macedonia to Russia, agreed for placement through the Macedonian Exhibit and Trade Center located in Food City complex - the largest wholesale food distribution center in Russia.
Dejan Besliev, executive director of the Macedonian-Russian Chamber of Commerce informed that the first shipment is consisted of water, biscuits, products from the canning industry of the companies "Vori," "Gorska", "Swisslion" and "Grand Export".
Agriculture covers 70 percent of Macedonia's exports to the Russian Federation. We hope that this step and export through the Macedonian Exhibit and Trade Center this year will exceed the value of last year's trade exchange between the two countries, which amounted to US$200 million, and that products from other branches will also be represented, Besliev said.
Nikola Jovanovski from “Grand Export” said that by promotion through the Macedonian Exhibit and Trade Center they realised products placement on the Russian market and already they have announcements for direct contracts with large chains of markets and wholesale companies from the Russian Federation and from the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union.
Blagoja Cvetkovski from "Swisslion" said that the product quality certification has been done properly and they have received the necessary permits for product placement on the Russian market, where they see great potential for export.
So far, thirteen companies from Macedonia have signed agreement with the Macedonian Exhibit and Trade Center in Moscow, opened six months ago, which is a place for promotion, exhibition and direct sale of products from domestic companies. sk/13:45
