Russia and China on the threshold of an investment, not a trade breakthrough - Arkady Dvorkovich

Today, on the second day of the 12th Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum, a plenary session was held: “Russia and the countries of the Asia-Pacific region: from integration policy to development projects”.

Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, speaking at the forum, said that Russia and China are on the verge of a serious breakthrough in terms of investment, not trade cooperation. In this regard, he noted such a project as the high-speed Moscow-Kazan highway, which can become part of the Great Silk Road project.

Arkady Dvorkovich explained that China is Russia's largest partner in the East both because of the size of its housekeeper, and because Chinese investors are more active and faster than investors of other countries. At the same time, he added that the Chinese partners are consistent, take into account the demands of the other side and avoid conflicts. "We are ready to work with China on a parity basis: by 50% or 49% plus 51%. The Chinese side understands that it is more comfortable for us to work in this way and is meeting them halfway. I do not see any political restrictions and obstacles in working with Chinese investors, "Arkady Dvorkovich said.

Deputy Minister of Economic Development Stanislav Voskresensky, in turn, said that Chinese investors recently transferred an additional list of 12 projects in Russia, to invest which they have intentions.
