Medvedev: agricultural growth in 2015 will be 2.5-3%

MOSCOW, December 9. Growth of agriculture of the Russian Federation in 2015 will amount to 2.5-3%, said Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in an interview with Russian TV channels.

“The situation is quite good, as this year we will receive from 2.5 to 3% growth in agriculture – and this at a code, we have a number of limitations, primarily financial,” he said.

The Prime Minister noted that such performance is possible because the anti-crisis plan of the government works. “I believe that the crisis plan worked. Separate question: do I need this plan to roll over for the future. It will depend on our assessment of where we will be next year – do we have a crisis or we are already in the period of recovery growth”, – said Medvedev.
