DUBLIN, December 13. /TASS/. Russia and Ireland set up a working group for development of bilateral trade-economic and investment cooperation. An appropriate protocol was signed on Wednesday by Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister of Ireland Simon Coveney and Russia’s Deputy Minister of Justice Maxim Travnikov.
The new bilateral format will work within the framework of the intergovernmental committee on development of bilateral business cooperation, with its meeting held in Dublin. "We see growth of the Irish economy. While the economic crisis limited mutual investments before, now we are highly optimistic when looking into the future," Travnikov said.
The bilateral committee now comprises five working groups on information and communication technologies, aviation and transport, agriculture, energy, and education.
