Russia and Bulgaria Increase Volume of Freight Transportation

Representatives of the Russian-Bulgarian transport committee have announced the completion of an agreement which specifies the volume of freight transportation between Moscow and Sophia. As a Rosbalt correspondent was informed by the Bulgarian Transport Ministry, trucking companies in the two countries are now allowed to make 10 thousand round trips every year. The relevant protocol was signed in Sophia by Deputy Russian Transport Minister Anatoly Nasonov and his Bulgarian counterpart Lubomil Ivanov.

Experts believe that the new quota will mean a much greater volume of freight transportation and 'will bring trading relations between the two countries to a much higher level.'
