The year 2019 was quite successful for the trading industry of Bashkiria, said the head of the State Committee for Trade RB Alexei Gusev.
“The wholesale trade turnover for the first time overcame the “trillion mark”- over 1.018 trillion rubles in total for 2019. The growth amounted to more than 12% to the level of 2018. According to this indicator, Bashkiria now occupies the fourth place in the Volga Federal District,” he said at a meeting of the board of the department.
