The government will reimburse 20% of the investments into hothouses vegetables production in Russian Far East, stated Mikhail Mishustin, Prime Minister. It is necessary to develop the production in the regions, as unlike other areas proving stable increase of hothouse vegetables production, Far East lacks behind. The Ministry of Econimic development is aware that there are currently some projects for construction and modernization of hothouse facilities in Far East, and the state financial support will be most convenient. It will also help to reduce the consumer price for local vegetables.

Actually, the rate of self-sufficiency of vegetable production is 2.4 times less in Far East than average in Russia. In most part of the region, the territories are unsuitable for horticulture, and state funding seems absolutely necessary.

The need of such a support was communicated to M. Mishustine during his business trip to Chukotka in August 2020 and his visit to a hothouse in Anadyr, the central city of the region, informed TASS Agancy.
