In the sphere of investment relations between Russia and Japan are not interrupted

“As for Japan, we talked specifically about the fact that the sanctions regime negatively affects our bilateral relations, in particular, the trade turnover, which reached a historical maximum last year, and this year shows negative dynamics. We see this as a direct impact of sanctions, ”Ulyukaev said.

According to Ulyukaev, he drew the attention of his Japanese colleague to the fact that it was necessary to seek solutions, exits from this situation, which does not benefit any of the participants.

“This is our first meeting with a Japanese colleague, it seemed to me very constructive. In particular, the fact that the minister supported my proposal to create a working group on investments and the fact that we are not interrupting relations with Japan in the field of investments, ”the head of the Ministry of Economic Development explained.

Ulyukaev noted that the meeting also discussed the possibility of holding a Russian-Japanese forum in March 2015, as well as several other bilateral economic events. “It seems to me that the Japanese side has a fairly pragmatic approach. For political reasons, they cannot distance themselves from the sanctions regime, first of all initiated by the United States, but nevertheless, without breaking it formally, find prospects for the development of trade and investment, ”the minister said.

Today, the head of the Ministry of Economic Development held five more bilateral meetings with his colleagues from Singapore, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and the PRC.
