UFA, 21 September (BelTA) - The opening of a dealer center in Ufa, which represents both a sales and maintenance point, is the right entry to an important and promising market, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said at a ceremony to open a dealer center for Minsk Automobile Plant (MAZ trademark) in Ufa on 21 September, BelTA has learned.
Roman Golovchenko and Head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov were shown a lineup of MAZ vehicles at the dealer center. Then they cut the traditional red ribbon to launch the center.
“The most important thing is that all the vehicles on display here are fully import-substituted. In a short period of time we have managed to replace all the equipment which used to be supplied from unfriendly countries and started making products with excellent characteristics of domestic - Belarusian and Russian - developments. I am confident that the products will find their consumers. We have also given the right start which is both the sales and maintenance center. This is the right entry to an important and promising market, so the primary task is to sell more,” said Roman Golovchenko.
The Belarusian delegation is also expected to attend a ceremony in the capital of Bashkortostan to lay a capsule for the construction of the Amkodor grain post-harvesting machinery and equipment plant.
The Belarusian government delegation led by the prime minister is on a visit to Ufa and Kazan on 20-22 September. The Belarusian delegation has comprised representatives of various ministries and agencies, heads of Belarusian companies such as MTZ, MAZ, Belkommunmash, Amkodor, and Horizont.

Both sides expressed interest in the implementation of projects to supply Belarusian equipment to Bashkortostan.
