    Russian food products will be available in Asian markets within three years, the Russian minister of agriculture said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Alexander Tkachev said that Russian domestic products would be promoted abroad by expanded participation in international exhibitions and fairs.

    The export potential of meat and grain products increases each year, according to the agriculture minister.

    "…In three years, if we actively continue our work on all fronts… Russian food will be part of the Asian market, I have absolutely no doubt about it," Tkachev said at a meeting on increasing food exports.
