MINSK, 28 May (BelTA) – Belarus’ Deputy Prime Minister Anatoly Sivak put forward Belarus' cooperation proposals as he met with Governor of Russia’s Altai Territory Viktor Tomenko on 27 May, BelTA has learned.

“More than 20 industrial enterprises of Altai Territory cooperate with Belarusian companies within the framework of import substitution and industrial cooperation programs. One of them is Minsk Motor Plant (MMZ trademark); it supplies engines to enterprises of Altai Territory. MMZ is ready to ship more engines to the region. In turn, Altai Precision Components Plant sells fuel injectors to MMZ,” said Anatoly Sivak. It is noteworthy that Minsk Motor Plant plans to launch engines with a new type of fuel system produced by Altai Precision Components Plant.

The Belarusian side confirmed readiness to continue supplying passenger vehicles (buses, autonomous trolleybuses, electric buses, trams) to the region.  

According to the deputy prime minister, Belarus has the capacity to provide Altai Territory with all the necessary utility vehicles, road construction machines and trucks and haulers. “We are ready to meet the region’s needs for a wide range of equipment; we can offer reasonable purchase terms and can provide maintenance services,” he noted.

Belarus has amassed great competencies in the production of wildfire and emergency equipment, noted Anatoly Sivak. “We are ready to participate in Altai Territory’s Forest Conservation project that is part of the Environment national project. Belarus can supply firefighting and emergency equipment for wildfire units and emergency departments,” he added.

Altai Territory is working on a regional program as part of the Unmanned Aviation Systems national project. This program will allow buying unmanned aerial vehicles for the needs of agriculture, education, and environmental protection and develop own technology. “The National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and the Aviation Technologies and Systems company develop and produce unmanned aerial systems designed for surveillance, reconnaissance and data collection; they help obtain video footage, make aerial photography, relay radio communication signals, transport cargo, carry out scientific research, increase agricultural yields. We are ready to collaborate in this field. Belarusian drones can be widely used in the economy of your region,” the deputy prime minister said as he outlined cooperation prospects.

He also drew attention to domestic machine tool products. Belarusian enterprises manufacture a wide range of metalworking equipment. The machines can compete with the world’s best products and have proven themselves in Belarus and Russia. Representatives of Altai Territory organizations are welcome at Belarusian machine tool enterprises where they will be able to study the country’s competencies in this area.

Anatoly Sivak mentioned the positive experience of Mogilevliftmash in participating in electronic bids to replace elevators as part of the regional elevator replacement program. The Belarusian enterprise replaced 209 elevators, or more than 60% of the total. “We are ready to fully meet the region’s needs for elevators that are to be mounted in the existing housing stock and new high-rise buildings and to expand the assortment of supplies by including hospital elevators and other types of equipment. I think this is relevant for the region taking into account the ongoing construction of healthcare facilities,” he added.
