Ireland-Russia Agri Overview by IRBA Chairman Dr. Constantin Gurdgiev:

The Russian economy’s continued growth since the 2008-2009 crisis has been underpinned by rapid expansion in consumer spending and a fragile, but growing long-term capital investment programme aimed at modernising and diversifying economic acidity. Coupled with a prolonged recession and stagnation in the Euro area, these developments have made the Russian market an increasingly important and attractive trade and investment partner for Ireland. Russian goods imports from Ireland have increased from €245 million in 2009 to €620 million in 2011 and are set to rise by 6-8% in 2012. With Russia’s GDP growth expected to average roughly 3.8-4.0% up to 2017, primarily fuelled by a strong recovery in consumer consumption and declining inflation, Russian markets offer tremendous potential for Irish exports. We expect 2013-2017 goods exports to Russia from Ireland to rise to well over €1 billion annually with overall, longer-term potential for trade volumes close to €3-€4 billion annually. Read more…
