MOSCOW, March 23 (Itar-Tass) — Columbia is interested in the early signing of a trade agreement with Russia, including that on the avoidance of double taxation and mutual recognition of education certificates, Columbian Vice-President Angelino Garzon said. He is currently on a visit in Moscow.
He also said, “Columbia is ready to respect the interests of the other two countries of the Customs Union (which comprises Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan).”
“The signing of a visa-free trips agreement has become an important step forward in the development of our countries’ relations,” Garzon said. “Undoubtedly it will be useful for mutual investment.”
“Columbia will be of interest to Russian businesses not only by itself, but as a gateway for Russian capital to Central and South American countries,” he said. “We are ready to provide any assistance along these lines.”
Garzon plans to discuss ten bilateral agreements with Russian officials, including representatives of the Ministry of Economic Development and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.
