The Belarusian leader made this statement at the official launch ceremony for the production of animal feed and amino acids at the Belarusian National Biotechnology Corporation in Pukhovichi District, BelTA has learned.
“I want to thank my good and long-standing friend Xi Jinping. If not for his decision… It was a strong-willed decision. Everything depended on the president of the People's Republic of China. And when I was in talks with him, I asked him for this in a simple and friendly way. I really appreciate this man for his support,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The BNBC project is ongoing. The third and fourth stages are still ahead. The corporation has plans to launch production of medicines and medical preparations. “A huge cluster, a big association should emerge here,” the president noted.
“This location is great. And I want this project to become the economic lifeline of the district. Therefore, we will proceed to the third stage. This issue has already been worked out. In the near future I will meet with the president of the PRC to finalize our plans on the third stage,” the Belarusian leader said. “It sounds overambitious but it would be great to accomplish the fourth stage as well. It is provided for in all your production plans. Therefore, we agreed that we will build this plant and will produce medicines here. Such a cluster should rise up on these lands,” the president added.
