BEIJING, January 12, /ITAR-TASS/. The trade turnover between north-eastern Chinese province Heilongjiang and several territorial entities in Russia’s Far East has reached 22.36 billion dollars in 2013, posting a 5.8 percent year-on-year growth, the customs directorate of the Chinese province reported.
The trans-border trade turnover has made around one fourth of overall trade between the two countries.

Despite positive changes in regional trade and economic relations, the bilateral trade had experienced some stagnation, going up only 1.1 percent to 89 billion dollars in the previous year, the Chinese Directorate General of Customs reported.
