MINSK, 11 May (BelTA) – Belarusian Deputy Industry Minister Dmitry Kharitonchik talked to reporters before a meeting of the working group in charge of preparations for international industrial expo Innoprom, which will take place in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg, and mentioned what vehicles, machines, and equipment will be on display in the Belarusian national exposition, BelTA has learned.
Dmitry Kharitonchik remarked that Belarus had selected an extensive lineup of vehicles that will be put on display at the expo. “Those are products made by MAZ, MTZ, Amkodor, Gomselmash, and other main industrial enterprises. If we talk about MAZ, there are plans to showcase a new tractor unit, which is fitted with a more powerful engine compliant with the Euro-6 emissions standard and an automated manual transmission. Apart from that, there are plans to showcase fire trucks that are in demand in Russia. The Belarusian tractor manufacturer MTZ will present several unmanned models. One of them will be demonstrated live outside. As well as new tractors,” the official noted.
Plans are in place to present over 20 units of equipment at the expo. On top of those the machine-tools industry will be represented with about 14 units of equipment. “Those are our modern R&D products that can be potentially in demand in the territory of our countries. Apart from that, there are plans to demonstrate a large number of engines and motors, lifting equipment, and other machines and vehicles,” Dmitry Kharitonchik said.
In his words, a Belarusian-Russian business forum will be an important part of Innoprom. Representatives of the Industry Ministry, the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, and the Belarusian Universal Commodity Exchange will make speeches at the forum. The most topical matters for discussion are import substitution, manufacturing cooperation, prospects of joint development of the manufacturing sector, and new trends in economy, Dmitry Kharitonchik added. Innoprom is traditionally the key platform in the Commonwealth of Independent States and gathers a large number of foreign guests. The key goal of enterprises is to look for new ties.
It will be the first time Belarus will take part in the Innoprom expo as a partner country. The partner country status is special. The key advantages include exhibition area of at least 3,000m2, priority placement in the exhibition pavilion, broad support on the part of organizers, Russian federal and regional authorities, and increased attention in the exposition from mass media.
