MINSK, 21 October (BelTA) – Belarus is interested in enhancing investment cooperation with Slovakia, Chairman of the Council of the Republic Mikhail Myasnikovich said as he met with a Slovakian parliamentary delegation led by Robert Madej, Chairman of the Constitutional Committee of the National Council (Parliament) of the Slovak Republic, Head of the Group of Friendship with Belarus, on 21 October, BelTA has learned.

Mikhail Myasnikovich pointed out that Belarus-Slovakia trade is growing and that the trade is balanced. “We do not limit our cooperation to trade. We are implementing investment projects, which means joint business and shared interests,” Mikhail Myasnikovich said. Speaking about investment projects, he said that he wished there were more of them. According to him, the parties will work on it.

Slovakian companies could expand their presence in Belarus, Mikhail Myasnikovich believes. As a member of the EAEU, Belarus is a good gateway to the EAEU market, he added.

The ambassadors and MPs of the two countries have also established fruitful cooperation. The parties exchange visits, hold interregional forums and other events. Mikhail Myasnikovich believes that this indicates high level of trust between the two countries. “Everything is great on this front,” he noted.

The countries have done a lot to bolster interregional ties. Mikhail Myasnikovich thinks that such ties have great prospects. “We believe that Belarus and Slovakia will continue strengthening friendly relations and cooperation for the benefit of their nations,” Mikhail Myasnikovich said.
