This paper discusses the interdependence between Russia’s agro-food sector and the rest of the economy. To address the impact of macroeconomic changes on agro-food markets in the transition period, a stylized computable general equilibrium model (CGE) has been constructed. The current data base of the model consists of five food industry sectors and two agricultural sectors among a total number of 17 sectors. The model is used for three simulations the results of which highlight the magnitude of macroeconomic repercussions stemming from changes in agriculture’s sector performance.
