The paper analyzes some empirical aspects of competition in the Russian food market. The forms of competition in the economy under transition are discussed and empirical studies summarize the results of a survey carried out on the Russian food industry covering 61 firms. The survey focused on current marketing strategies and marketing problems of Russian food companies and their assessment concerning the nature of competition and its effects on the economic environment. The survey also addressed the issue of how government activities impact the competitive environment for agro-food firms. Some changes in the situation of agro-food industries after the financial crisis in August 1998 are also examined.

This paper discusses the policies of agricultural finance and credit which have been implemented during the period of economic reform in Russia. An examination of various government measures reveals the pitfalls and shortcomings in their implementation. The main problem, however, lies in the fact that the government is attempting to remedy the consequences, rather than tackling the causes. The delay in introducing new methods of regulating agricultural finance and credit is aggravating the problem even more.
