At present, Sino-Russian trade cooperation is showing positive development. The volume of trade is steadily increasing. The structure of import and export commodities is highly complementary. The areas of cooperation are expanding. The potential for trade cooperation is huge, but there is still a single structure, low added value of products, and regional trade friction problem. The two countries should firmly seize the opportunities of the Belt and Road initiative to further optimize the Sino-Russian trade structure and expand trade. In the field of trade cooperation, it is necessary to accelerate the process of establishing a free trade zone, strengthen bilateral high-level dialogues, optimize trade policies, promote the common development of the two economies, and contribute to the maintenance of regional peace and stability.
