According to RIA Novosti, referring to the trade adviser of the Malaysian embassy, Haifil Elmi Jamila, the Malaysian authorities "are optimistic about increasing exports to Russia."
"We encourage Russian business to choose Malaysian companies as a business partner.
At the same time, we are actively promoting Malaysian products and services in Russia, and we encourage our exporters to expand their presence in these markets, which represents a huge potential for our manufacturers", - the diplomat said.
Meanwhile, despite the sanctions, the trade turnover between Russia and Japan is growing.
Last year, the figure was 2.56 trillion yen ($19.96 billion). With China, Russia's trade turnover has reached a new record level, increasing by almost 30%.
