Head of the Russian Federal Statistics Service (Rosstat) Vladimir Sokolin told Itar-Tass in an interview on Tuesday that the growth of grain and bread prices has no economic reasons
Head of the Russian Federal Statistics Service (Rosstat) Vladimir Sokolin told Itar-Tass in an interview on Tuesday that the growth of grain and bread prices has no economic reasons, it has been caused artificially by stirred up inflationary expectations. “According to statistics, Russia’s grain reserves as of July 1 this year are larger than last year and Rosstat has published this information,” the official pointed out. Certain market participants have not only ignored the objective information, but organised in mass media publications stirring up inflationary expectations, Sokolin stressed. “At the same time everybody for some reason has forgotten that since 1992 Russia has had no food crises, and its export potential currently reaches 10-15 million tonnes of grain,” the Rosstat head stressed. As a result, in his view, even in the event of poor harvest it will be possible to correct the internal grain balance by means of lowering of the export share. The official said as well that the all-Russian economic census of the population might be held in 2009. “The necessity of such a census is backed at all levels and the issue is only when the Finance Ministry will be able to allocate funds for it, but a common decision will certainly be found,” the Rosstat head pointed out. Without the economic census the quality of statistics decreases, because the activity of small businesses and non-incorporated entrepreneurs is poorly taken into account. “This problem is serious both for the federal and territorial levels,” Sokolin believes. The Rosstat head is taking part in a meeting of the council of the leaders of territorial bodies of state statistics of the Siberian federal district. It is held in Ulan-Ude on Tuesday. Siberian statistics specialists are discussing problems of data collection in large constituent entities of the federation and in special tourist zones.
