BEIJING, Sept. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

by the China Economic Information Service (CEIS) on Wednesday.

2019, up 12.66 percent from that in 2018. 

The monthly China-Russia economic and trade index shows that although global 
trade has shrunk sharply due to COVID-19, China-Russia bilateral trade has 
maintained an increase trend, reflecting the great resilience and potential of 
bilateral economic and trade cooperation. 

Based on the trade complementarity index, among China's exports to Russia, the 
products with strong trade complementarity are finished products classified by 
raw materials, machinery and transportation equipment, and miscellaneous 
finished products, including food, textiles, steel, and machinery. Among 
Russia's exports to China, non-edible raw materials, fossil fuels and 
lubricants are highly complementary.

degree of division of labor in food industry, followed by processing 
manufacturing. The division of labor in consumer goods retail industry is 
becoming increasingly optimized.

cooperation between the two countries have continuously improved, boasting a 
promising future.
