According to news Agency PRIME, the President of the National Union of grain producers Pavel Skurikhin said about the possibility of specialization of countries (Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan) in the framework of the black sea grain pool. In his opinion, to eliminate competition on the markets between the three countries – Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan is impossible, but it is possible "to agree on the division of labor." Skurikhin has offered Russia to focus on the production of wheat with a protein content of 11-14% and barley, Ukraine to take the whole feed market, and Kazakhstan to take the production of wheat with protein level higher than 14%.
Skurikhin said that competition between countries on the grain market today very sharp, and Russia in many respects loses Ukraine – Ukrainian exports is much more Russian (the forecast for this year for Ukraine is 28 million tons, for Russia – only 15 million tons).
According to Skurikhina, Russia needs to pay more attention to the quality of grain, the use of technology. Promising markets for Russia, according to skurihina – Europe, Saudi Arabia and the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.
We will remind that conversations on creation of the grain pool has long been underway, but concrete decisions still have not been taken despite the discussions at the world grain forum in St. Petersburg in 2009, an agreement on "redesigning grain pool" between the heads of agrarian departments of Russia and Ukraine in 2012. The idea of creating a grain pool was pointed out in connection with the establishment of the Customs Union, in which Russia and Kazakhstan have found themselves in equal conditions of export. Now both countries are interested in cooperation with Ukraine, which did not seem in a hurry to operate, but it alone is actively exporting wheat, and corn.
