According to Denis Manturov, the parties discussed in detail the issues of industrial cooperation in the areas where there is potential for development. “This is almost all the industries - high-tech, energy and transport engineering, chemical complex, and pharmaceuticals.

We also discussed bringing domestic trade within the framework of the Union State into a single format. We will continue cooperating in this area and bring the existing agreements into compliance with the legislation,” he said.
The deputy prime minister outlined a new area of cooperation - aviation industry. “Yes, we used to place orders for aviation components in Belarus, but now we are considering expanding projects to produce samples for local aviation. We agreed to develop this program and approve it within the next two months,” he stressed.
The light industry was also mentioned. “We have many joint projects, including supplies of wool from Russia, its processing in Belarus and its further use by Belarusian and Russian companies for the production of knitwear. There are many aspects of industrial cooperation. We will continue to develop all these directions,” Denis Manturov added.
