The mission was organised by the Russian Export Centre (REC group - which is part of VEB.RF) and the Russian-Kyrgyz Development Fund (RKDF), and 30 Russian exporting firms took part, REC said. “Our countries have actively promoted business relations for a long time, and to extend cooperation we are ready to discuss prospects and growth points for the export of Russian products to the Kyrgyz Republic, including projects which require the participation of Russian companies, the use of the REC group's financial tools and Russian high-tech equipment in the framework of state programmes for the development of production and infrastructure projects,” Azer Talibov, chairman of Eximbank, said during the business mission's opening ceremony.
