MINSK, 18 February (BelTA) – Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus to Romania Andrei Grinkevich visited Constanta County located in the historical region of Dobruja at the invitation of the Romanian business community, BelTA learned from the Belarusian embassy.

The main purpose of the trip was to promote Belarusian products on the Romanian market and to study a possibility of improving the logistics of Belarusian supplies to Romania and through Romania to third countries.

The Port of Constanta is the largest in Romania and the second-largest on the Black Sea. The Danube, Europe's second longest river (after the Volga) and the longest river in the territory of the European Union, flows through Constanta County. Thus, Constanta is the sea gate of Romania. An additional advantage is a 1520 mm railway track reaching the seaport in Constanta.

Constanta uses Belarusian MAZ buses for public transportation. During the visit to Constanta County, the Belarusian ambassador met with top managers of a number of Romanian companies specializing in mechanical engineering, production of building materials, chemical industry, agriculture, food industry, and logistics to discuss ways to build and expand cooperation with the Republic of Belarus.

The diplomat also made a presentation of the economic, investment, scientific and tourism potential of Belarus. The participants of the talks discussed a possibility of using the Constanta port and logistics infrastructure to promote Belarusian exports to Romania and through Romania to other countries, including the European Union. They also discussed the shipment of Romanian products through Belarus to the EAEU countries, including using the infrastructure of the China-Belarus Industrial Park Great Stone.
