TASHKENT, 25 April (BelTA) – Work is in progress on selling wooden houses to Uzbekistan, BelTA learned from Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko on 25 April.
Roman Golovchenko said: “Prospects of exporting Belarusian wooden products, in particular, wooden houses, is another matter of current interest. As the president of Uzbekistan confirmed today, it is a very fashionable trend in this country, there is a great demand. Small batches have been bought in Western Europe until recently but the price is rather steep. This is why we've discussed the possibility of batch production and sales of house assembly kits.”
The Belarusian newsprint mill Zavod Gazetnoy Bumagi can make wooden houses in batches. “If we offer a competitive price, I think it will be our new market,” the prime minister noted.
There are plans to advance cooperation in pharmaceutics, too. “We have some of the same products. We've agreed we are not going to compete – we will explore the market niches where we don't overlap. I am talking about contract manufacturing of Belarusian medications in Uzbekistan and Uzbek medications in Belarus,” Roman Golovchenko added.
