DUSHANBE, 11 October (BelTA) – Belarus and Tajikistan are setting up joint productions of dairy products and carpets, Belarusian Ambassador to Tajikistan Viktor Denisenko told the media, BelTA has learned.
“Another enterprise that will be set up is in the light industry. We are setting up a joint venture in Khujand to produce Vitebsk carpets,” said Viktor Denisenko.
We are preparing to open a joint venture with Minsk Dairy Plant in Tajikistan. “I hope we will launch this project by the end of the year,” said the ambassador.
Earlier, a Tajik-Belarusian elevator making company had been established in Khujand. However, it has not yet reached its full capacity. A large state order is needed to load it. The parties have been discussing this issue for a long time.
Belarusian tractors are already successfully produced in Gissar. The embassy considers this enterprise to be the most promising in Central Asia, because the range of machines produced there expands every year and they are in demand both in the domestic and neighboring markets.
“We have both the production base and the permanent exhibition expanded. I am sure it is a good example for our equipment manufacturers,” the diplomat said.
The same company also assembles harvesters specially designed by Gomselmash for Tajik farmers. According to the ambassador, plans are in place to supply 55 vehicles to Afghanistan through Tajikistan.
Belarusian IT companies also cooperate with Tajikistan. They plan to take part in the Safe City program. There are great prospects in the construction industry, with the capital of Tajikistan being transformed.
“Construction fittings are very much in demand. Just a week ago, a Tajik delegation visited our metallurgical plant and signed good contracts,” said Viktor Denisenko.
