Belarusian Transport Ministry expects services export to grow in 2022

MINSK, 2 November (BelTA) – The Transport and Communications Ministry expects the export of services to grow and passenger traffic to further recover in 2022. Belarusian Transport and Communications Minister Aleksei Avramenko made the statement before the Council of Ministers' Presidium session held on 2 November to discuss the operation of the transport industry in 2021 and next year's plans, BelTA has learned.

The official said: “Certainly, this year has not been simple but I should note that the transport industry demonstrates positive performance. In the period under review passenger traffic rose by 10.6% while the export of transport services grew by 19.6%. We expect positive dynamics to last till the end of the year. If we talk about transportation by air, we focus on work in the eastern direction and the southern one. Russia lifted restrictions in September, this is why it is the main market we now work on.”

Aleksei Avramenko also talked about next year's targets. “We've determined the main criteria of work on our key targets. We expect the export of transport services to continue. We hope passenger traffic will continue recovering. The plans also include the development of transit transportation by rail, primarily container transportation,” he noted.

In his words, the resumption of passenger transportation in full is still a topical issue in the Eurasian Economic Union. Close attention is also paid to increasing the mutually beneficial transit of freight, particularly between China and Europe.
