MINSK, 22 July (BelTA) - About 200 companies from all regions of Belarus are attending the meeting with Belarusian ambassadors, Chairman of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Vladimir Ulakhovich told the media before the meeting, BelTA has learned.
"Our enterprises have a great interest in this meeting. About 200 companies from all regions of our country have sent their representatives here. These are export-oriented enterprises that need to discuss the ways how to work on certain markets. They need advice of our embassies. In any case, we need to work as a close-knit one team today. Our main task is to tap into new markets, new countries, to harness all existing opportunities and expand presence in any export market,” Vladimir Ulakhovich said.
I hope that the Belarusian companies and embassies will reach most-results-orients agreements that “will benefit the enterprises, helping them maintain the export growth at the level they reported in Q1 and H1 of 2021,” Vladimir Ulakhovich said.
As for companies that work with the EU, there are certain limitations that affect our enterprises, Vladimir Ulakhovich noted. “At the same time, we see that our partners – European business associations and companies – are keen to maintain cooperation. This is a matter of mutual interest. European partners are interested in cooperation with Belarusian companies, because it lays the groundwork for future work. We also intend to take advantage of various new formats to boost our export, for example, international e-commerce platforms and online exhibitions. We need to reconsider our approaches and adopt a pragmatic one. This matter is on top of the agenda of today's meeting,” he stressed.
