MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is due to meet with Austrian Vice Chancellor Reinhold Mitterlehner on Wednesday to discuss bilateral economic cooperation, the governmental press service has said.
At talks in Moscow the sides are expected to discuss the ways to increase bilateral trade, as well as boosting cooperation in the energy, cultural and humanitarian spheres.
Mitterlehner is currently in the Russian capital to take part in a meeting of the Russian-Austrian commission for trade and economic cooperation that he co-chairs.
"The relations of Russia with Austria develop positively and are characterized by stability, predictability and the absence of significant problems," the governmental press service said.
Austria pursues the line towards "keeping the constructive dialogue with this country and the accumulated positive cooperation in different spheres." Russia and Austria maintain contacts between the parliaments, regions and governmental agencies.
Russia’s government considers that one of the priority tasks is to overcome a decline in bilateral trade mainly caused by the crisis in the global economy and anti-Russian sanctions of the European Union.
The Russian-Austrian trade fell by almost 24% in January-October 2015 compared with the same period of 2014.
The two countries also held cross-culture seasons during which more than 60 events were organized, including exhibitions, performances of creative teams, movie screening and literary evenings.
