MINSK, 10 March (BelTA) – In terms of the Chinese market Belarus seeks not only to increase the flow of goods, but also transfer technologies and set up advanced production facilities, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the government meeting to discuss the country's economic performance in 2022 and to map out plans to address social and economic development tasks for 2023, BelTA has learned.
The head of state noted that China remains the main strategic partner of Belarus among the countries of the far arc. "China is the fulcrum in the entire vast Asian region for us today," Aleksandr Lukashenko said. “China is committed to cooperation with us. Almost 40 contracts for $3.5 billion were concluded during the recent visit to Beijing. Now do not waste time to endless coordination and approval procedures, or red tape in other words.”
In today's very dynamic geopolitical situation, Belarus needs to act fast and carve up its niches in the markets. "We must not only increase the flow of goods, but also transfer technologies, set up advanced production facilities. We need to facilitate the activity of Chinese businessmen and Chinese investments in our country. China has a great interest in Belarus," the president stressed.
