Vladimir Putin discussed issues of Russian-Chinese cooperation with Li Keqiang

Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed issues of cooperation with the Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Li Keqiang, in particular, in the trade, economic and investment spheres. The press service of the Kremlin reports.

The President of the Russian Federation noted that relations between the two countries are developing "at a fairly good pace," and Li Keqiang's visit will play a "significant role" in this. “I am very pleased to note that China occupies one of the leading places in terms of investment in the Russian economy - fourth, but after Cyprus, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. These are countries with a favorable tax regime, it is clear that our own capital is returning from there, this is the repatriation of capital, and in fact China is in first place, and last year's growth was 15 percent, this is a very good indicator, ”said Vladimir Putin.

Li Keqiang also noted the positive trends in bilateral trade relations. "It is noteworthy that in the eight months of this year, the increase in Russian exports of machinery and engineering products has doubled, and from our side the export of such products to your country has increased by only one percent," explained the Premier of the State Council of the PRC. He expressed hope for the expansion of mutual investment, as the two countries "have a huge, in fact, inexhaustible complementarity of economies."

“We are natural partners, natural allies, we are neighbors. We set ambitious, absolutely attainable goals, and, of course, all this will benefit our people: both Chinese citizens and Russian citizens, ”concluded Vladimir Putin.
