Eastern exports from Russia for the first time exceed Western

East Asia will become a key region for Russian exports in 2019. It will outstrip historically the largest buyer of domestic products – Western Europe.

Such a forecast was made specifically for Izvestia at the Russian Export Center (REC). They expect that sales in these two areas will at least be equal – mainly due to the growth in exports to China of raw materials and non-commodity products. According to the calculations of the REC, in 2018 the import of domestic goods and services to Western Europe amounted to $ 101.4 billion, to East Asia – $ 93.5 billion. However, experts doubt that the East will take the lead – in their opinion, this can significantly prevent a trade war in which China is primarily embroiled.
