According to experts of the of Russian Agricultural Bank Centre for Industry Expertise, to fully cover the population's demand for Russian wine it is necessary to increase grape plantings by 100,000 hectares, which requires large-scale investment.
Although considerable sums are allocated from the federal and regional budgets to support winegrowers and winemakers, state support alone is not enough in this respect. Private capital and an involved investor are needed.
In this session, we will discuss the investment potential and conditions necessary to attract private capital.

Topics for discussion:
• Realistic conditions and payback periods for investment projects.
• The investment potential of individual regions. Projects open for investment.
• Investment in autochthonous varieties: utopia or the future of the country's winemaking.
• Acceleration and support for small viticulture and winegrowing businesses to establish and develop small farms.
