The message reads, in part:
For many years, Golden Autumn has introduced participants and guests to the achievements and potential of the Russian agricultural industry, which has recently become an advanced as well as highly competitive field, with a steady growth rate and good prospects.
The industry’s accumulated strength is indicated by the fact that, despite the harsh weather conditions, our agricultural producers once again demonstrated successful results during this agricultural year.
I would like to note that, in order to secure the positive trends and to move forward confidently, it is necessary to pay utmost attention to creating modern agricultural and processing companies, modernising agricultural equipment, and extensively implementing the latest technology. It is important to invest generously into agricultural research and to invest in the training of qualified professionals.
Of course, it is also important to develop infrastructure and social facilities in rural areas, to take care of the people working on the land who are passionate about their job and to make a significant contribution to strengthening the country’s economic potential.
On its part, the Government will further provide support to agricultural producers and the agricultural industry in general.”
