Russia interested in expanding supplies from Vietnam
Among the most important areas of cooperation Medvedev also called mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, mining and agriculture.
Russia is interested in expanding supplies of fish, vegetables and fruits from Vietnam and is ready to deliver agricultural products to the country, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a press conference after the talks with Vietnam's new Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
"We currently find ourselves in a unique situation due to the fact that there are limitations associated with the delivery of a number of European Union products, and products of other countries to the European Union market.
"Therefore, we are interested in supplies of fish products, seafood, fruits and vegetables from our Vietnamese partners and enterprises to the Russian market. At the same time, we are interested in supplying livestock products to the Vietnamese market," Medvedev said.
According to the prime minister, Russia and Vietnam have agreed to promote mutual trade in national currencies and cooperation between banks of the two countries.
"We have agreed that we will develop cooperation in the banking sector and to expand the area of application of the national currencies in bilateral turnover as much as possible," Medvedev said. ■
