Moscow. The volume of trade between Russia and Uzbekistan may reach $5 bln in 2019, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation Sergey Katyrin told TASS said on the sidelines of the Forum for Interregional Cooperation, which is under way in the Uzbek capital of Tashkent.
"In 2017, the whole turnover amounted to $3.65 bln, which was actually 40% more than a year earlier, told TASS.
This year, in January-July alone the increase was almost a third in comparison with the same period of last year, and the turnover has already exceeded $2.37 bln. I suppose that it is not a long way to $5 bln, and probably next year it will happen," he said.
