"This issue concerns the impossibility of accounting for export at the place of its origin. We are talking about cases where the products are manufactured by the enterprise in one region and exporting can be done in another," the Minister said at a meeting with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on the issue of export promotion of agricultural products.
He explained that for this reason, one of the leaders in the export of grain from Russia, according to official statistics is Moscow.
"This situation makes it difficult to assess the contribution of each region in the production of export products," - said Patrushev.
"We assume that the solution of this issue is required to make adjustments to the existing methodology of accounting exports, the Federal customs service and Federal state statistics service. We submitted proposals to the project Committee, we ask you, Dmitry Anatolyevich, to support us", - said the head of the Ministry of agriculture.
