Mikhail Myasnikovich pointed out that Belarus-Slovakia trade is growing and that the trade is balanced. “We do not limit our cooperation to trade.

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.

In turn, Robert Madej reaffirmed Slovakia's interest in stepping up relations with Belarus. He expressed confidence that this situation will not change after the parliamentary elections that are due in Belarus in less than a month and in Slovakia in February 2020.
