Russia will revise its mechanism for issuing quotas for meat imports in 2010, Russian minister of economic development Elvira Nabiullina has announced.

According to news agency Interfax, she said the Economic Development Ministry and the Agriculture Ministry in Russia take a unified view on the need to revise the quotas for imports of pork and poultry so they do not put pressure on domestic producers.

Russia’s current agreements with other countries on the mechanisms for issuing meat import quotas expire at the end of 2009.
