During the international meeting parties discussed the issues of establishing strong bilateral economic relations between countries in a post-pandemic and an unstable epidemiological situation.

A busy day of negotiations ended with a wonderful excursion to the sights of the cradle of the Russian intellectuals on the Oka riverside.
