“The idea of import substitution itself is not universal and is not what we should strive for in the end, because import substitution should not undermine competition.
This is an extremely important thing. We all need to understand, and all this import substitution is a temporary phenomenon. I want you to understand all this ... This is such a temporary tool for adjusting the current situation, ”Putin said.
He also emphasized that such products should be produced in order to be competitive in the world market. “And if we constantly“ cheat ”something there, then we will never achieve this final result,” Putin said.
Earlier, Minister of Economic Development Maxim Oreshkin said that Russia will gradually move away from a policy of direct import substitution.
