RUSSIA - This year, Russia is expected to import about 190,000 tonnes of beef from Argentina, head of the Russian Rosselkhoznadzor agricultural watchdog, co-chairman of the Russian-Argentinean inter-governmental commission for trade, economic, scientific and technological cooperation Sergei Dankvert said on Wednesday.

This indicator is expected to remain unchanged versus the previous year, he added.

In his words, Russia may count on the beef imports from Argentina, in spite of the fact that the latter imposed temporary ban on beef exports as an extraordinary measure aimed at combating price hikes on its domestic market.

In 2005, Argentinean beef made up 26.4 percent in the total volume of Russia’s beef imports, Dankvert said.
