foreign trade, the operation of our embassies in a couple of words,” the
President said.Vladimir Makei said that there was
positive dynamics in the development of foreign trade in 2017. “The export went
up 23%. Two thirds of this increase is attributed to the growth of prices, one
third – to the physical growth of export. That is why, we can say that this is

there are no reasons for self-complacency. As for diversification, there has
been progress in this field, but we still need to do a lot,” the minister said.
