Andrey Danilenko, Chairman of the Exhibition Council at AGROFARM 2020, Chairman of the Committee on Agro-Industrial Policy of Delovaya Rossiya (Business Russia), entrepreneur ombudsman in the field of trade regulation, member of the Board of Directors of DAMATE Agro-Industrial Complex LLC, said the following about the immediate and long-term prospects of AGROFARM Exhibition at VDNH:
“There are many creative ideas that we are going to implement at AGROFARM as soon as in 2020. Then there exist long-term plans for innovative development in 2021–2025.
Obviously, it would be good and convenient for agrarians to come to Moscow once a year, when the sowing season isn’t started yet, but the New Year holidays are already behind, to spend time efficiently: to show their accomplishments, to communicate with professionals in their industry, and to make plans for the year ahead. It is the goal of AGROFARM Exhibition to become such a venue.
The Exhibition has a promising future in this regard as the Government of Moscow launched a new project, VDNH EXPO. After it opens, VDNH will bring together several exhibitions of the industry, and hold one large-scale event in early February each year. That event will cover every sector in Russian agriculture.
I have talked about the Exhibition with the Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation and a number of his deputies, as well as many of the departments in the industry, and all I can say is that for all of us the AGROFARM Exhibition at VDNH has become a tradition. Within the next several years it will gradually turn into a global country-wide platform, where decisions will be adopted not only on various business issues but various strategic decisions as well.”
