Vice Premier Li Keqiang kicked off visit to Russia from on April 26, 2012. The visit after Russia's presidential election and on the eve of the transfer of power for Russian leaders will undoubtedly have very important significance to the future development of the bilateral relations.

China and Russia has a huge potential for comprehensive cooperation. With the continuous development of the bilateral relations, the cooperative potential is being developed effectively

In the political field, both sides agree that as world's great powers enjoying traditional and long history and culture, they should explore a development road in line with their national conditions to make their unique contribution to the progress of the global political civilization.

In the economic field, both sides actively expand cooperation between the competitive industries to improve the quality of cooperation. The value of Sino-Russia trade has reached over 79 billion U.S. dollars in 2011, a growth of nearly 43 percent year-on-year. Among them, Russia's exports to China was 40 billion U.S. dollars, a growth of 56 percent, and China's exports to Russia was 39 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 31 percent. If that continues, it is not difficult to achieve the goals of 100 billion U.S. dollars in 2015 and 200 billion U.S. dollars in 2020.

In the humanity field, the similar but different human spirits and natural features of the two countries are very attractive to their people. With the "National Year," the "Year of Languages" and the "Tourism Year" held in the two countries, they can hold more special exchange activities in the future, including the high-tech "Year of Aerospace" and "Folk Culture Year" for the participation of ordinary people, to promote the official and folk interaction and exchanges.
