“The current trade and economic relations between Russia and the United States have been complicated by Washington’s sanctions. Nevertheless, there are the interests of economic agents and concrete companies and the implementation of joint projects,” a Trade Mission representative said.
“If we look at the trade turnover figures, we will see that it increased by 16% from January to May,” he said. “This is a good pace and our main task is to keep it up even though it’s hard to make projections for further development of the situation under sanctions”.
“By February of this year we had made very serious plans for cooperation with the US and had done a great deal of work to identify new strategic areas of joint work, improve the legal framework and take our cooperation to a qualitatively hew level. It’s a pity that all this has now been put off for reasons beyond our control,” the official said.
