Export potential of animal breeding asincrease factor foreign economic activity of the agro-industrial Russian Authors: Kavardakov, Valeriy Y., Array Semenenko, Irina A., Array Annotation Fundamental factor in the formation of the export potential of the agro-industrial complex of the Russian Federation is a scientifically based assessment of the export potential of various management forms. In the short term, the main suppliers of pig and poultry products for export will be large- and medium-sized agricultural organizations and peasant (farmer) farms, the level of competitiveness of which is comparable with foreign companies. Small forms of management (agricultural organizations, peasant (farmer) farms, households, individual entrepreneurs) will be focused mainly on domestic markets. However, even these forms of management have the potential to supply environmentally friendly “organic” products to foreign markets, subject to the development of competitive regional systems of consumer cooperation. The fundamental principle of foreign economic activity state regulation is the principle of excluding unjustified interference of the state and its bodies in this activity, causing damage to its participants and the economy as a whole. The economic policy of the state should be aimed at improving the regulatory framework for regulating foreign economic activity and strengthening control over foreign economic operations.
