Cooperation between the Russian Federation and the countries of Southeast Asia is successfully developing in many areas
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Russia–Singapore Business Council; initially when it was created in 2009 on the initiative of the Russian Chamber of Industry and Commerce with the support of the Ministry of Economic Development and the Rostec State Corporation, the Council included just ten companies. Now we have 70 Russian enterprises and over 40 Singaporean companies — Nikolay Volobuev, Deputy General Director, Russian Technologies State Corporation.
Our main achievement is the creation of the RS Trade electronic trade and service platform, which was announced at the Russia–ASEAN summit in Sochi in May 2016, and its work was announced in November of the same year. <...> First of all, this platform allows to promote the products of Russian manufacturers in the countries of Southeast Asia through Singapore — Nikolay Volobuev, Deputy General Director, Russian Technologies State Corporation.
We are highly satisfied with our Southeast Asia roadshow; we promoted two products: our Ansat helicopter and Mi-171A2. 20 firm contracts and 20 option contracts were signed for Ansat, and about 20 option contracts for Mi-171A2, totaling nearly half a billion US dollars — Aleksey Pakhomenko, Deputy General Director for Programs and Strategy, Russian Helicopters.
As a result of the first half of 2019, we see an increase in export deliveries of completely new types of products, such as nitrogen fertilizers – an increase of nearly 200%, although in absolute terms the numbers are still fairly small – lumber, sunflower oil and food products — Maxim Kobin, Managing Director for Client Work, Russian Export Center.
