Yamal supports business relations with trade partners from forty-eight countries of the world. The main trade partners of the region, despite the sanctions, are: China, Indonesia, Belgium and Finland. This information was given to a correspondent of IA “Sever-Press” in the department of international and external economic relations of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
In 2016 the foreign trade turnover of the participants of foreign economic activities of the Autonomous Okrug 4.9 times increased and reached 6 milliard and 800 million U.S. dollars. Export of goods 2.5 times increased and made 1 milliard and 700 million U.S. dollars. Last year import deliveries made about 5 milliard US dollars, what is 7 times more than in 2015.
Foreign trade turnover grew due to the significant increase in the share of imported goods in trade structure of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
As it is noted in the specialized department, the positive dynamics of foreign trade turnover in the region is stipulated with increase in the cost of amounts of goods arriving to the seaport of Sabetta, where the plant on liquefying of natural gas is being built. Thus, average import contract prices 6 times grew and increased the weight amount on 51.8 percent of exported gas condensate.
