According to M. Bocharnikov, the countries intend to continue to develop cooperation in such areas as industry, transport and a number of other industries.

Recently, the work of our Business Councils has intensified, in which the chairmen have been replaced. People who are interested in promoting our energy ties came to this position. For our part, the Council is represented by over 70 companies. Business interests should be taken into account when the state plans development directions. Until the end of the year, our economic cooperation will be stimulated”, - the ambassador said.
