MOSCOW, July 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is confident that the trade turnover between Russia and Italy this year will reach the pre-crisis level.
“We can be pleased with the development of our trade and economic relations. They have recently been on the rise,” said the head of the Russian government at a meeting with his Italian colleague Mario Monti. “It can be assumed that the turnover will reach the pre-crisis level.”
Medvedev said that at Monday’s meeting the two government heads are to “coordinate positions”, talk business and summarize the joint work that will result in the signing of a number of agreements.
Monti stressed for his part that Russia and Italy have developed an intensive dialogue. “As you know, I will continue the visit with a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin,” Monti said, expressing hope that relations between Russia and Italy will become even stronger in connection with Russia’s WTO accession.
Monti also said that another round of Russian-Italian interstate consultations is planned for October in Rome.
