MINSK, 28 July (BelTA) - Perm Territory Governor Dmitry Makhonin spoke about the prospects of bilateral cooperation as he answered the questions of journalists after his meeting with Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko in Minsk on 28 July, BelTA has learned.

According to him, Belarus and Perm Territory boast “quite a good turnover of goods”, about 300 companies of the region deliver their products to Belarus, and 220 Belarusian manufacturers send their products to the Russian region. “This is however not enough. We have prospects in mechanical engineering, in particular in the production of equipment for potash mines. The production of the Belarusian company Niva is already located in Perm Territory. Our task is to set up maintenance centers in order to simplify the delivery and operation procedures of the equipment,” the head of the region said. According to him, the existing contacts with AMKODOR, MAZ, and MTZ will be further developed.

He also mentioned the proposal to localize the production of Belarusian elevator equipment, cooperation in the potash and oil refining industries. “It is very important to consolidate all that through the ministries and departments of the region and the country, to put these agreements on paper and continue implementing them,” he said.

Contacts on economic issues will continue during the Perm Engineering Forum, which will be held in early December 2022 and to which a Belarusian delegation has been invited.

The governor considers it advisable to organize a direct flight between Perm and Minsk, which will help unlock the tourist potential.

“There is a lot to work on. The most important thing is that given today's economic realities we have a desire to make our countries economically powerful,” Dmitry Makhonin emphasized.
