Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev expects Russian and Vietnamese trade to double

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is pleased with the Russian-Vietnamese economic interaction and expects that the trade turnover will be increased to 10 billion dollars from the current almost 4 billion.

"Russian-Vietnamese cooperation is on the increase, evidence of this is the good level of trade - it is already in the region of $ 4 billion," said the head of the Cabinet of Ministers at a meeting with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung.

Medvedev recalled that the two countries have targets for increasing trade: "We want to reach $ 5 and, in the future, $ 10 billion."

According to the Russian prime minister, "on the whole, relations are developing very positively." Medvedev noted that the heads of government of the two countries meet regularly. He hopes that this dialogue will continue in 2015. The prime minister also added that in two weeks, the general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Chong will visit Moscow, with whom the Russian side intends to "negotiate and sign documents."

The Vietnamese Prime Minister agrees with his Russian counterpart. "Our bilateral relations are developing very well in all areas," he said. Nguyen Tan Dung expects that bilateral economic relations will be able to "bring to a more meaningful and effective level, which would correspond to the relations of strategic partnership."
