Work on the land and the development of agribusiness are important for the economies of many countries, especially in Russia and Europe. Currently, the field of farming is rapidly developing due to high-tech and digitalization of processes, there are more and more successful innovative projects, international "cyber-farms". Potential buyers are increasingly looking for farm products, a personal approach, sustainability and, in general, nature-friendly approach. More people are moving out of multi-million cities and hive houses into the countryside. They want to live in private houses surrounded by nature and to preserve their health. This is especially the case during the pandemic. But there is another trend, experts say, that villages are dying out due to the outflow of population, urbanisation processes, brain drain. And the economy of big cities requires more and more people, more products that are fresh, of high quality, quickly available and long-lasting, so the city starts to take funds from the villages.
But is this true, and what is now happening in rural business, what is new and promising in the agricultural sector, we will find out at the Russian House in Brussels.
