Riyadh – Saudi-Russian trade exchange grew by 53.8% over the first nine months of 2019 on the prior year, Russian energy minister Alexander Novak said.
The volume of trade exchange between Saudi Arabia and Russia amounted to $1.2 billion over the nine-month period ended September, Novak said on Thursday.
Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) and Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) invested around $2 billion in Russian projects.
Novak’s remarks came during a meeting with his Saudi counterpart Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman in Vienna on the sidelines of a meeting between members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other major producers, including Russia, an alliance known as OPEC+.
“We highly appreciate the existing dialog, including at the highest level, […] and are confident that we need to continue our cooperation both through international cooperation and in the direction of mutual development of energy and economic ties,” Novak said.
