MINSK, 3 April (BelTA) – Cooperation between Belarus and Russia has never been more relevant, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Kaluga Oblast Governor Vladislav Shapsha on 3 April, BelTA has learned.
“Enterprises of Belarus and Russia are naturally integrated into joint production chains,” the head of state noted.
According to him, this is taking on new significance as the two countries are working to promote industrial cooperation, introduce new high-tech technologies, and substitute import.
“We are well familiar with your potential. We have a history of successful projects to set up industrial parks and free economic zones. It is vital to use our potential after many Western companies left Russia. We need to figure out how we could get integrated into these structures and manufacture much-needed products. In other words, our cooperation is now as important as never before,” Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized.
