MINSK, 24 November (BelTA) – Belarusian manufacturers are ready to participate in the program on renewing the passenger vehicle fleet in Kuban. Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko made the statement as he met with Governor of Russia's Krasnodar Territory Veniamin Kondratyev in Sochi, BelTA has learned.
Roman Golovchenko said: “Residents of the resort city know Belarusian buses well. Most of them were sold ahead of the Olympics. I hope you will be able to appreciate capabilities of Belarusian trolleybuses soon.”
In his words, a Belarusian electrobus was shipped to Sochi in October and has gone through running trials in the city. “We know it did well in complicated city streets. This is why taking into account this experience we would be glad if you choose Belarusian manufacturers for supplying the city's transport fleet with electric vehicles,” the prime minister noted.
Roman Golovchenko pointed out: “It is important that all the models we offer to Krasnodar Territory are anti-sanction ones, as we say. They don't use components from manufacturers from unfriendly countries, this is why there are no manufacturing risks.”
In January-September 2022 Belarus' trade with Krasnodar Territory amounted to $385.5 million, 63.8% up from the same period of last year. Belarus' export rose by 57.6% to $268 million, with import up by 79.8% to $117.5 million. Belarus secured a foreign trade surplus of $150.5 million.
