MINSK, 1 August (BelTA) - China is well aware of the high quality of Belarusian goods, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to China Yuri Senko told the media on 1 August, BelTA has learned.
When asked about the sanctions policy of the collective West, led by the United States, and its impact on the relations between Belarus and China, the ambassador acknowledged that it has had a certain impact on the countries, including Belarus. This impact is associated not only with problems but also with new opportunities and search for new solutions. According to Belarus-China trade statistics, the countries manage to find new niches and rebuild the relationship, the head of the diplomatic mission said. “We have found ways to improve our relations and trade between our countries. I am sure that these figures will continue increasing every day,” Yuri Senko said.
He cited food trade as an example: in January-May 2022, the supply of agricultural products to China increased by 75% compared to the same period last year. “Keeping in mind a rather high basis of the previous year we got a very good result,” the ambassador said.
“China is very attentive to quality Belarusian food products and knows Belarusian quality very well. Belarus and quality are two inseparable concepts for China. No matter what province I have been to, everywhere I hear about the high quality of Belarusian products,” Yuri Senko stressed.
Moreover, the initiators are Chinese companies that are looking for partners in Belarus, says the ambassador. According to him, over the past year and a half Belarusian and Chinese companies have held about 20 business forums where some 3,000 companies exchanged contacts.
