Poland hopes to resume exports to the Russian market in the short term, Poland’s Deputy Development Minister Radoslaw Domagalski said Friday.
“I hope that we will return to the market and that this return will happen sooner than in the long-term prospect. There are a lot of areas where we can deepen cooperation, including construction materials and chemicals,” Domagalski said, as quoted by TVN broadcaster, adding that Poland also wants to expand food and foodstuff exports.
The Polish official, participating in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, cited low price as advantage of Polish exports over products from Western Europe.
In 2014, Moscow and Brussels split due to disagreements over the crisis in Ukraine. After the European Union imposed several rounds of sanctions against Russia, Moscow stroke back banning food export from the countries which supported anti-Russia policy.
