Russia’s agriculture sector has been one of the fastest expanding segments in Russia’s economy in recent years. The sector’s gross value added (GVA) expanded at a real CAGR of 12% during the 2012- 2017 period. A supportive government policy, protectionist measures, technical trade barriers and continued use of sanitary and phytosanitary measures have provided a substantial boost to the sector.
