According to Iya Malkina, cooperation in the manufacturing industry in the Eurasian Economic Union was discussed in detail at the meeting. “I will focus on the proposals and initiatives voiced by Belarus' Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko. I think that the Eurasian Electric Bus project is the most interesting project for Belarus. Of course, this project was also discussed by the prime ministers,” she said.
“At present, possible details of this project are under discussion at the EEC. We need to decide on partners (Belarus has already voiced such proposals), and we also need to do all the necessary paperwork so that these projects could qualify for some financial benefits,” said Iya Malkina.
