BEIJING — China and Russia saw their bilateral trade grow steadily in the first eight months of this year, according to the Ministry of Commerce (MOC).

Bilateral trade totalled $70.59 billion during this period, up 4.5 percent year-on-year, MOC spokesperson Gao Feng told a news conference on Sept 12.

China's direct investment in Russia expanded 13 percent year-on-year in the first seven months of 2019, covering a wide range of sectors ranging from energy and agriculture and forestry development to automobile and food processing. Investment approaches also diversified.

The two sides are promoting the establishment of a joint sci-tech innovation fund to support investment and cooperation in this field, according to Gao.

Bilateral service trade almost doubled in 2018 compared with the previous year, according to Gao.
