BREST, 30 March (BelTA) – Belarusian mechanical engineering companies should develop a network of dealerships in Russia's Penza Oblast, BelTA learned from Penza Oblast Agriculture Minister Roman Kalentyev in Brest on 30 March.
Roman Kalentyev said: “We've been cooperating with Belarus for a long time, including in deliveries of agricultural machines. Relations with Gomselmash are particularly close and long. We estimate the company's share in Penza Oblast's fleet of agricultural machines at about 40%. A dealership operates in Penza Oblast. We've agreed with colleagues that we will consider and sign a new agreement on joint activities. We would like other mechanical engineering enterprises to consider the possibility of opening their own dealerships in Penza Oblast.”
Belarusian enterprises have representative offices in Penza Oblast. For instance, interests of Bobruiskagromash, MAZ, MTZ, and Amkodor are represented in Penza Oblast.
Head of the Central Office for Foreign Economic Relations of the Belarusian Industry Ministry Yegor Chernyavsky stressed: “Belarusian industrial enterprises are intent on satisfying consumers' demand for lifts, trucks, passenger vehicles, and agricultural machines as much as possible and as promptly as possible. The equipment and machines need quality aftersales service. By supplying equipment, machines, and vehicles, we undertake to keep them in high technical readiness for the duration of their service lives.”
The first session of the working group on cooperation between Belarus and Russia's Penza Oblast took place in Brest on 30 March. The sides put together a list of projects for cooperation in agriculture, manufacturing sector, tourism, and culture. The Russian delegation has an extensive itinerary for their stay in Brest.
