International round table of NAAI: agricultural insurance in Russia prepares for a new stage
The development of agricultural insurance in Russia is in the mainstream of worldwide trend though now its characteristics are not adequate to agribusiness market size. While in the world the share of the insured farmlands makes 38%, and in a number of countries about 90% of crops are insured, Russia still can’t make more than one fifth of cultivated areas being insured. To propel agricultural insurance to the next level, we need to solve a series of tasks connected, first of all, with the infrastructure development and to improve management control, as well as to offer diverse terms of insurance taking into account some regional features. Such proposals were made by participants of the International round table "World experience and improvement of agricultural insurance in Russia" which took place in Moscow on April 8.
