MINSK, 8 September (BelTA) - Chairman of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BelCCI) Mikhail Myatlikov told the media about the areas of cooperation with Russia and China ahead of a meeting of the BelCCI members of Minsk and Minsk Oblast on 8 September, BelTA has learned.
Mikhail Myatlikov stressed that the Union State countries have excellent partnership relations. “We actively cooperate with the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. We have also signed a lot of agreements with regional chambers of the Russian Federation. This year we have updated the same document with the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. There was a session of the business council during the Forum of the Regions of Belarus and Russia. Russian business showed big interest in the event. Next year we are planning to hold a similar event in Russia. Proposals and issues are formed and submitted for consideration both to the national bodies of state administration and the Eurasian Economic Commission,” the chairman said.
Many Belarusian enterprises participate in the state program of import substitution together with Russia. “It is an opportunity to produce the components that our partners need, while Russia produces the components we need. This is the main activity where we cooperate with Russia within the framework of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry,” the BelCCI head said.
We also continue active cooperation with China, he added. This year there are plans to present the national exposition of Belarus at the international import exhibition in Shanghai, which is due to take place on 5-10 November. “This is a great opportunity for Belarusian companies to present their products for further sale in China,” the BelCCI head said.
