$100 billion trade volume between Turkey and Russia not ‘ambitious’ enough: Russian minister

 

The aim to reach a trade volume between Russia and Turkey worth of $100 billion is “not that ambitious,” Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said during a press conference after the 12th meeting of the Turkish-Russian Joint Economic Commission in Antalya April 20.

The current trade volume between both countries is approximately $34 billion. “It [$100 billion] means that we would have to triple our trade volume. If we look to the aspects of our trade the primary import materials are energy resources and metals, at around 87 percent,” he said.
