MOSCOW, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will continue support to business which operates on the African continent, President Putin declared at a meeting with the Council of the upper house of the Russian parliament.
"Our work on the African continent is an extremely important direction. We cannot and should not continue this work in a previous format which proved too costly for our economy and our budget," Putin said.
"These countries have already switched over to a new "system of measurements," which applies to their economic life as well. They are very rich countries in terms of nature resources. Our business is already beginning to work there. Naturally, it needs support. I think the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Economic Development and the network of Russian trade missions abroad should do that. I hope for support of Duma deputies and the upper house.
