Two-way trade reached almost $114 million last year, the minister said after signing an agreement to establish an intergovernmental commission on economic co-operation. This will deliver an extendable five-year program focussed on information exchange and eliminating business barriers.
“I believe it is quite possible for us to solve the challenging task of increasing bilateral trade to at least $500 million,” Ulyukayev said. “I think we can do this by 2017.”

Priority investment projects would be developed in metallurgy, oil production, transport, engineering and aviation, the minister said, adding that officials would prepare a schedule for government-backed activity up to 2017.
