According to the head of the Russian Cabinet, good results have been achieved on the economic track. And above all, in mutual trade. He noted Mishustin that despite the unfavorable external environment, the Russian-Chinese trade turnover is demonstrating double-digit growth rates: over the 10 months of this year, it increased by almost a third and approached $ 150 billion.

“This is already higher than the figures for the whole of last year. In the future, as agreed by the leaders of the two countries, we will reach $200 billion or more,” Mishustin concluded.
