LUNINETS, 2 December (BelTA) – Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko paid a working visit to Brest Oblast on 2 December. In Luninets the Belarusian head of government visited the production workshops of the private company Victoria, BelTA has learned.
Founded 25 years ago, the company is a leading producer of cast aluminum cookware in Belarus today. Every year the company processes more than 1,000 tonnes of aluminum to produce more than 170 names of products. The company has repeatedly become a winner of various national and international competitions. Today the company is working hard on an import-substitution project. It produces gear hydraulic pumps, which are widely used in mechanical engineering.
“The Kirovograd plant was the only producer of them in the post-Soviet space. We offer our products to replace imports: our aluminum alloy casting specialists have already designed tooling for five types of pumps. The equipment for their production is expensive, that is why we need cooperation ties – we need companies, with whom we can make this product,” the director of the enterprise Tatiana Vdovenko said.
Roman Golovchenko instructed Chairman of Luninets District Executive Committee Aleksandr Savina to include the proposal from the company in the list of district innovative projects for 2023-2025. The prime minister was interested in the investment put in the enterprise during the years of its development, how the products of the domestic producer are represented in the trading networks, and the company's plans for the future.
Roman Golovchenko then went to Luninets Dairy Plant to get familiar with the production process and prospects of development of the enterprise. The plant made its first products in December 1969. Today the enterprise is one of the most developed and economically stable enterprises in Luninets District. The plant produces butter, milk powder and whole-milk products. Brest Oblast Governor Yuri Shuleiko and Belarusian Agriculture and Food Minister Igor Brylo took part in the discussion of milk processing issues.
In the afternoon, the prime minister is set to chair an on-site meeting of the Presidium of the Council of Ministers in Pinsk. The meeting will focus on the development program for towns and districts with a population of 80,000 or more.
