Russia’s Kursk invites Belarusian manufacturers to join motor fleet upgrade program

 MOSCOW, 16 March (BelTA) – Russian Kursk is planning to carry out a large-scale program to upgrade the entire line-up of utility and road vehicles and invites Belarusian enterprises to take part in it, Belarusian Ambassador to Russia Dmitry Krutoi told reporters following the talks with Kursk Oblast Governor Roman Starovoit on 15 March, BelTA has learned. 

"Kursk invites our Belarusian companies MAZ, MTZ and AMKODOR that specialize in the utility and road segment to hold a presentation in Kursk Oblast and start supplying their goods," Ambassador Dmitry Krutoi said.

The ambassador noted the long-standing cooperation ties that have developed between the enterprises of Belarus and Kursk Oblast of Russia. 

"Minsk Motor Plant began to supply engines to the Kursk enterprise Elektroagregat and organized a joint assembly of diesel generator sets for vessels of various classes. In addition to the supply of ready-made fertilizers, Grodno Azot began to work in cooperation with a Kursk company. This is also an important project and is under control of the governor. There are very few examples in Russia when our light industry companies cooperate. In Kursk, the Bel-Pol company has been operating for 20 years, having survived many crises. This is also an interesting experience," the ambassador said. 

In turn, Kursk Oblast Governor Roman Starovoit recalled that the presidents of Belarus and Russia, Aleksandr Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin, set the task of developing cooperation ties between enterprises and moving away from simple trade. He stated that the residents of the region know and love both Belarusian food products and other goods from Belarus, but now the parties are actively studying options for setting up joint ventures and mutual use of raw materials and components of each other.

"Today we discussed such a proposal: we have signed twinning agreements between 20 municipalities. This is quite a lot: there are only 28 districts in Kursk Oblast, 20 of them are twinned with Belarusian districts. We suggested the twin districts launch cooperation projects. I hope that within a month or a month and a half, our colleagues will offer us, and we will choose the most interesting projects that could be implemented with the support of the governments," Roman Starovoit said.
