Russia hopes the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEK) countries will lower tariffs on supplies of certain ecology goods, Russia’s Deputy Minister of Economic Development Stanislav Voskresensky told TASS commenting on results of the organisation’s meeting of trade ministers.
The Russian side, he said, "is watching closely the obligations, the APEC economies undertook in Vladivostok in 2012." Export of the products of the kind is worth "hundreds millions of dollars."
The list of goods contains 54 positions.
"Those are, for example, kind of equipment like generators, gas turbines, optic equipment and parts," the deputy minister said. "The core markets are China, Korea and the U.S."
