The message reads, in part:
“I would like to note that the Association’s congressional programme invariably features a detailed agenda, bringing together numerous participants for accomplishing its current tasks that are in high demand, and attracting wide-ranging public attention. This is convincing evidence that, each year, farming continues to strengthen its role in implementing the significant potential of the national agro-industrial sector, saturating the domestic market with high-quality and environmentally friendly produce, ensuring this country’s food security and export capabilities, as well as developing rural territories.
I am confident that, during the current congress, you will discuss topical matters of the Russian agro-industrial sector in great detail and at a high expert level, that you will analyse the sector’s prospects, and that, of course, you will suggest constructive ideas that are sure to evolve into real projects and endeavours.
I would like to thank you for your fruitful work, initiative and enterprising spirit and for your caring and frugal attitude towards farmland.”
