The parties examined the prospects for cooperation in industry, agriculture, construction, housing and utilities services (supply of elevators, waste processing and water treatment technologies). Particular attention was paid to the ways of intensifying cooperation and mutual support in order to meet the import substitution targets," the diplomatic mission said.
When discussing the areas of cooperation, the ambassador shared with the governor his impressions of the recent meeting between the presidents of Belarus and Russia, Aleksandr Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin. “The leaders of Belarus and Russia agreed that it was the industry that was dealt the main sanction blow. direct sanctions have been imposed on half of the industries . If we do not ensure the survival of this segment, there will be nothing further to talk about. Therefore, the heads of state demanded that we focus on cooperative import-substituting projects in the industry," Ambassador Dmitry Krutoi noted.
