On June 21, the AEB Retail Trade Committee held an open meeting to discuss the development of retail in Russia during 2023-2024. 


The meeting was attended by Yulia Yudina, Deputy Director of the Department of Internal Trade Development of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The discussion was moderated by Alexey Grigoriev, Chairman of the Committee and Director Public Policy at METRO Russia.

During the meeting, Ms. Yulia Yudina shared her assessment of the key processes in retail trade over the last year and her forecasts for further evolution of the consumer market.

The participants took the opportunity to send their questions in advance or address them during the discussion. Thus, the greatest interest and concern of business was evoked by the initiative to establish quotas for domestic goods on sale (the so-called "Russian shelf") supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, issues of possible regulation of marketplaces and e-commerce as a whole, consumer protection from counterfeit products, including those brought in through "parallel imports", as well as labeling and traceability of goods.

Following the agreement with Ms. Yulia Yudina, materials on some issues discussed at the meeting will be sent from the AEB to the Ministry of Industry and Trade in the nearest future.
