Day One, November 15, 2017

8:30 Start of registration and welcome coffee

9:30 - 11:00 Introductory remarks. Legislation and development of the market for products of deep grain processing: did the government start to pay attention to the industry?
Vladimir Putin said that "today, agriculture, the agro-industrial complex as a whole, is one of the most dynamic sectors of our economy. It is necessary to move further, develop deep grain processing, strengthen positions in the domestic and world markets ... ". The Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation Alexander Tkachev noted the need to develop deep grain processing with increasing production of gluten, feed and biofuels, stressing that "Russian agrarians can direct almost 5 million tons of grain to deep grain processing".
