SMOLEVICHI DISTRICT, 3 June (BelTA) – Belarus and Kazakhstan have everything in place to increase bilateral trade up to $1.5 billion, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said during a working meeting with Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Olzhas Bektenov, BelTA has learned.

“Kazakhstan is our friend, a strategic partner and ally. We highly appreciate our friendship and hope to intensify contacts. Of course, the tone for cooperation is set by the presidents of our countries, who are deeply immersed in the bilateral agenda and regularly discuss it at various platforms. I would like to emphasize that Belarus is very much looking forward to the official visit of the president of Kazakhstan that may take place in October-November this year. A highest level visit is an opportunity to achieve a new milestone in cooperation and we believe that we have the wherewithal to do it, especially in economy,” said Roman Golovchenko.

He noted that over the past three years, bilateral trade exceeded $1 billion. “I believe that it is quite possible to hit the $1.5 billion mark. This is pretty realistic to do it within the next 1-2 years. The portfolio of current and promising projects gives confidence in this,” noted the prime minister.
