Despite a 6.7% decrease in trade turnover in 2020 compared to 2019, the total volume has exceeded the US$100 billion mark for three consecutive years. Energy products are the most sought-after goods from Russia in China, while there has been a growth in non-energy non-resource exports - in 2020, its volume was $16.3 billion, a plus of 13% over 2019," REC quotes Roseximbank Board Chairman Azer Talybov from the round table "Trade in the era of self-isolation: China's XIV five-year plan and its implications for Russian exports."
