"In the first two months of this year, the trade turnover significantly grew, and this shows a great potential of our trade relations and high complementarity of our economies," the Chinese premier said.
"The healthy and stable development of the Russian-Chinese relations has a positive impact on the region and the world as a whole," he said.
The trade turnover between Russia and China in the first two months of the current year grew by 28.8%, year-on-year, to $11.58 billion, China’s General Administration of Customs said in a report published on Wednesday.
