“We have implemented a big project in industrial cooperation. First of all, I am talking about the project for the production of tractor machinery at the Starominskaya site. In January-September 2022 we assembled 220 vehicles. By the end of the year we will reach the agreed volume,” said Roman Golovchenko.
He stressed that it is not the only joint project, but just a good example of a profitable industrial project with the support of the regional authorities.
"We would like to keep on going along this way and set up plants to assemble grain harvesters, forage harvesters and special-purpose vehicles on MAZ chassis," the prime minister said.
Today, agreements will be signed between large industrial enterprises. "In particular, a contract will be signed between MAZ and the local manufacturer to supply chassis for dump trucks for grain transportation. The Belarusian tractor engineering company MTZ and MTZ-Severozapad Trading House will sign a contract for 350 tractor sets," the Belarusian head of government said.
