Industrial products are among leaders: mechanical and medical equipment, cosmetics and auto equipment components. This was announced by Vladimir Efimov, Deputy Moscow Mayor for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations.

"Moscow today is a leader among Russian regions in terms of non-resource non-energy products supplies. The capital’s share is 16.6 percent of all Russian exports. Most of the supplies are the industrial goods, and interest in them is growing annually: in 2021, exports in this category increased by 36.1 percent compared to last year and by 27.3 percent — to 2019. In monetary terms, industrial exports for the first eight months of 2021 amounted to USD17.77 bln, and exports of the agro-industrial complex amounted to USD2.36 bln," Vladimir Efimov said.

Moscow products are purchased in 180 countries around the world. The main importers are Kazakhstan, Belarus, the USA and Germany. They account for more than 35 percent of all Moscow supplies.

This year, the volume of non-resource non-energy exports to Kazakhstan amounted to USD2.07 bln — almost 30 percent more compared to the same period in 2020.
