  • Internal trade is vital to develop a country’s economy, as it develops the abilities of producers to bring their products to the market and potential customers. Trade additionally is vital in terms of adding value, creating employment and for providing tax revenue. A country’s level of trade directly affects the quality of people’s lives. In Russia, levels of trade lag behind levels in Western countries
