The first results of the Russian-Chinese Expo

Every day a charter flight with 2014 tons of cargo is sent to Ekaterinburg from the Chinese city of Habrin from the middle of November 20. These goods were bought by Russian citizens through Chinese online stores. For a year (from 26 November 2013 to the present), Russians purchased in Chinese Internet stores goods for $ 200 million.

Such successes were achieved, among other things, due to foreign trade agreements concluded in July 2014 worth more than $ 230 million, protocols and agreements of intent - almost $ 840 million for The First Russian-Chinese Expo.

EXPO in Harbin is a large-scale platform designed to demonstrate competitive products and industrial and technical developments of Russian industrial companies and institutions, present the industrial and investment potential of Russian regions, develop bilateral cooperation projects and establish new contacts. The tone of the event was set by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, having stated earlier that “it is necessary to increase investment cooperation. The Russian-Chinese EXPO will be held in Harbin this summer to help solve this problem. "

"Russia sets the task of increasing the trade turnover between China and Russia to 2020 billion dollars by the year of 200. We consider this figure ambitious, but absolutely achievable," Denis Manturov, the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, said at the exhibition.

Meanwhile, EXPO in China - an event for our country is not new. It was created on the basis of the Harbin International Trade and Economic Fair, held in 1990-2013. Last year, the two countries signed foreign trade contracts worth 8,69 billion dollars, which amounted to 79% of the total amount of contracts signed at the fair. After such a crushing success, the fair was renamed the "Russian-Chinese Expo", choosing the slogan "New Platform - New Opportunities" as the motto of this year.

At the opening ceremony of the Russian-Chinese exposition, the Chinese side presented such projects as the Lyudinovo Special Economic Zone of Industrial Production, the Amazar Pulp and Paper Mill, the ASTRAROSSA Industrial Design and Innovation Center, and the construction of a bridge across the river.

Within the framework of the business program of the First Russian-Chinese Expo in Harbin, along with round tables and business meetings, the Days of Russian Regions were held. The presentations were held by the 20 regions, but the Far Easterners made themselves the loudest.
