Denis Manturov: "We Are Ready To Develop Long-Term, Equal And Mutually Beneficial Partnership Relations With France"

 On December 18, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia hosted a meeting between the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov and the Minister of Economy and Finance of the French Republic, Bruno Le Mer.

In his opening remarks, the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia noted that France has historically been one of the main economic partners in Europe for Russia.

So, for today more than 500 companies with participation of the French capital work in the Russian market in various branches of economy. At the same time, the most significant positions are among manufacturers from France in the fuel and energy sector, automotive, pharmaceutical and food industries.

However, according to Denis Manturov, the potential of the partnership is not fully disclosed.

Despite the current situation, we are open and ready to develop long-term, equal and mutually beneficial partnership relations between our states, as well as to implement new investment projects in all areas of cooperation ,

said Denis Manturov.

During the meeting, the sides noted successful cooperation in the aviation industry, in particular, joint work in the production of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, as well as cooperation in the field of helicopter construction.

Thus, the prospects of organizing the supply of helicopter equipment manufactured within the framework of Russian-French industrial cooperation to the markets of third countries, in particular, to India, were discussed.

In addition, productive cooperation in the field of railway engineering was noted.

 We are ready to give all support to French business both at the federal and regional levels ,

Denis Manturov assured.

The meeting was held on the eve of the next meeting of the Russian-French Council on Economic, Financial, Industrial and Trade Issues, in which the Director of the Aviation Industry Department Ravil Khakimov will take part .
