JINGANG /China/, October 19. /TASS/. The West’s anti-Russian sanction have had no impacts on economic cooperation between Russia and China, a Russian lawmaker said on Monday on the sidelines of the 6th forum on support to Russian and Chinese small and medium-sized businesses.
"I don’t think they [the sanctions] have had a direct impact. They have only opened the eye to who can be a friend and who cannot," Alexey Chepa, a deputy leaders of the A Just Russia faction and deputy chairman of the science and science-intensive technologies committee at the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, said. "There are skeptics who think that our cooperation [with China] will lead to a kind of dependency. I don’t share this point of view. We are interested in long-term contacts with China and China is interested in promoting its Eurasian development rpogram."
Chepa stressed the importance of Russia-China cooperation for small companies. "We are working with small and medium-sized businesses, we are trying to solve their problems by means of attracting foreign partners. It is supposed to help revive our economy," he said.
The forum on support to Russian and Chinese small and medium-sized businesses is held annually at the initiative of the A Just Russia Party. This year, the forum drew more than 20 companies from 12 Russian regions and about 170 Chinese companies.
