    The Russian Export Center (REC), a state export support institution, is planning to work on the expansion of the share of supplies of agricultural products to the Indian market, REC's Managing Director of International Projects Mikhail Mamonov told Sputnik on Friday.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — According to the official, there are at least two agreements that are on the final stage of preparation, one of which is related to wine and spirits.

    "We are expanding the supplies of agricultural products on Indian market. At present, the prices on chickpea, split peas, appear to be profitable enough for supplies," Mamonov said on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Business Forum (SPIEF).

    SPIEF, a major global platform for communication between business representatives and discussion of crucial economic issues, kicked off in Russia's second largest city on Thursday and will continue through Saturday. The Sputnik news agency is an official media partner of the forum.
