‘Agricultural week’ fair opened its doors at ‘Sibexpocentre’
On October 27, an agricultural industry fair ‘Agricultural Week’ was opened at the open- air exhibition area of ‘Sibexpocentre’. The event brought together more than 70 participants, including representatives of well-known brands and local manufacturers.
At the opening ceremony of the fair, the Deputy Governor of the Irkutsk Region, the head of the Administration of the Ust-Orda District Anatoly Andreyanovich Prokopyev made a welcoming speech:
Good afternoon, dear village workers, dear residents of our cities and villages! Annually, with the completion of the harvesting season, the results of the agricultural year as a whole are summed up. I must say that the weather conditions were not easy for our workers, but our producers of agricultural products coped with the weather and achieved good results both in the harvesting campaign and in general for the agricultural year. Today, even more attention is required to support our producers. It is necessary to renew equipment, implement new investment projects, and strengthen the material and social base of our villages. And there is still a lot of work to be done on this sphere. Dear village workers, on behalf of the Governor of the Irkutsk Region Igor Kobzev, I sincerely congratulate you on the end of the agricultural year! I wish you the best, health, prosperity, high milk yield, rich harvests and good weather! Happy Holidays!
The guests and participants were greeted by the Deputy Chairman of the Legislative Assembly of the Irkutsk Region Kuzma Romanovich Aldarov:
Dear participants, guests and organizers of the fair,on behalf of the deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the Irkutsk Region, I congratulate everyone on the completion of the agricultural season. Traditionally, in autumn, we sum up the results of the agricultural year, award the best workers, and celebrate the successes of those who worked hard. The pandemic has made its own adjustments to the development of the economy: agricultural production had a difficult time, consumption of basic products decreased, and incomes of the population significantly decreased. Today, on behalf of all the deputies, I would like to say gratitude to all the workers of the village. We are working to strengthen the legislative base for agriculture; we want every farmer, every enterprise to be confident in its future, to know what they will do in the near future, and how the state will support them. I want to say that in 2020 we managed to maintain quite serious financing of agricultural production; we are working on the budget for 2021. Nevertheless, we will try to maintain the main areas of support for our agricultural producers. I invite all residents of the Irkutsk region to the fair and sincerely wish to buy our own local products. Because only good, sustainable food will help us fight the pandemic. Congratulate you all with a holiday, wish you good mood and good harvests!
The Minister of Agriculture of the Irkutsk Region Ilya Pavlovich Sumarokov also made his welcoming speech:
Dear participants and guests of the exhibition, dear residents of Irkutsk and residents of the Irkutsk region! I am glad to welcome you to our traditional 26th agro-industrial exhibition. This year, unfortunately, we are forced to hold an exhibition in a short form, for understandable reasons related to the epidemiological situation. However, life goes on. Of course, first of all, the safety of our citizens and residents is important for us, but the issues of economic development, agriculture, and the agro-industrial complex remain equally important. Traditionally we sum up the results of year in autumn. Of course, we have something to be proud of, because this year was extremely stressful and difficult for agricultural producers in our region. The indicators indicate the dynamic development of the agricultural industry, which will always be in demand among residents and buyers. I would like to express my gratitude to all the workers of the village, everyone who chose this difficult work, for your dedication. I wish you confidence in the future, success in the implementation of new plans. I think the Irkutsk region has huge potential; we still have a lot of unused land. I would like to emphasize the great success of food and processing industry enterprises that produce finished products. They have grown this year as well. I congratulate everyone on the Day of Workers of Agriculture, Food and Processing Industry, I want to wish you success, prosperity, happiness and, of course, health to you and your loved ones. Thanks!
