MINSK, 1 December (BelTA) - This year shows excellent dynamics of trade between Belarus and Armenia, Belarusian Vice Prime Minister Piotr Parkhomchik said at a meeting with Armenian Economy Minister Vahan Kerobyan, BelTA reports.

"Today's meeting is a good opportunity to discuss topical issues of the bilateral relations. Our meetings are held on a regular basis.

The deputy head of government said that Belarus accepted the proposal of the Russian Federation to act as the general partner of the traditional Innoprom expo in Yekaterinburg. Piotr Parkhomchik invited Armenia to attend this event and see the new types of products and offers. "Belarus' traditionally focuses on mechanical engineering - transport, agricultural engineering, microelectronics. Our specialists went to your country and studied your experience in the field of microelectronics. We can actively complement each other in this industry," the Deputy Prime Minister emphasized.
