Golovchenko: Belarus, Tatarstan charted out short-term cooperation plans

KAZAN, 22 September (BelTA) – A number of contracts are to be signed following the Belarus-Tatarstan business forum, Belarus' Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko told reporters after negotiations with Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov on 21 September, BelTA has learned.

The Belarusian prime minister noted that at the meeting with Rustam Minnikhanov the parties took stock of the work done and outlined plans for the future.

“The results of the work are not bad: the main indicator of successful work of businesses and civil servants is the volume of trade, which is growing. In the first half of the year, Belarusian exports increased by more than 20%. This is primarily due to the fact that we were able to quickly adapt to the new environment and increased deliveries to Tatarstan enterprises. In turn, Tatarstan supplies commodities that we traditionally import: chemical raw materials, petrochemical components that are vital for the sustainable operation of Belarusian enterprises,” Roman Golovchenko stated.

The prime minister also noted that there is a lot of work ahead, the documents to ramp up the interaction between long-standing business partners - Belarus and Tatarstan - are scheduled to be signed on 22 September.

“The whole situation is pushing us to move forward faster and implement those projects that were previously postponed, we diverted our attention to other markets and projects. The situation has changed, we have Rustam Minnikhanov's full support in this matter, we have made up our mind as to what we will do specifically in the very near future. Tomorrow, I hope, following the Belarus-Tatarstan business forum, a number of commercial contracts and agreements will be signed that will determine the interaction procedure for our enterprises in the very near future,” the prime minister noted.

A reminder, the Belarusian government delegation led by Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko is visiting Ufa and Kazan on 20-22 September. The delegation is touring major enterprises, holding negotiations with the leadership of the republics, attending business meetings, signing documents on cooperation.

The Belarusian delegation includes representatives of various ministries and departments, heads of Belarusian enterprises MTZ, MAZ, Belkommunmash, Amkodor and HORIZONT.
