16.01.2009 09:32
Mutual trade volume between Russia and Afghanistan in 2008 exceeded $190 million, the former sales representative of Russia in Afghanistan Valeriy Ivanov said in an interview to Afghanistan.Ru. Thereby, as compared to last year it grew 2,8 times.

According to the Federal Customs Service of Russia and Ministry of Commerce of Afghanistan represented by Valeriy Ivanov, export of goods from Afghanistan to Russia made for $14,58 million, and from Russia to Afghanistan - $175,84 million.

Dried and fresh fruit remained Afghan principle exports, carpets and carpet goods were delivered too. Russian exports to Afghanistan in 2008 mainly were fuel and fuels and lubricants, timber, wood and saw timber, food, including flour, rolled metal products, pipes and metal objects, engines, turbines, pumps, medicines, detergents and hygiene products, transport vehicles, road construction equipment, electrical equipment and radiotechnical products, aerotechnics and aircraft spare parts.

"Afghan entrepreneurs, even under conditions of difficult domestic situation in Afghanistan, show interest in getting Russian goods, widely known in the country by prior periods of effective bilateral cooperation," Valeriy Ivanov said.

According to his opinion, indicator of turnover increase also shows ample opportunities for restoration of Russian presence not only in the Afghan trade field but also in the economic one, in case of state support for Russian entrepreneurs.

"Government guarantees of investments for regeneration and reconstruction of Afghanistan’s economy devastated after 1991 would be a serious impetus to Russian firms and companies work, and first of all, for reconstruction of former Soviet-Afghan economic cooperation objects, which had formed the basis of the Afghan economy," the expert assures.
