Friendly attitude of Belarusian Gomselmash towards Russian competitor emphasized

GOMEL, 16 November (BelTA) – Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko sketched out Belarus' stance with regard to the Russian manufacturer of agricultural machines Rostselmash, BelTA has learned.

Roman Golovchenko emphasized that the Belarusian agricultural machinery manufacturer Gomselmash and Rostselmash have always been on friendly terms with a bit of competition mixed in. “However, when Rostselmash was in a bit of a trouble, the Belarusian company did not try to exploit it. We acted as allies and partners should. We didn't profiteer from it although we could have substituted Rostselmash products on the Russian market. I think we did the right thing by helping out. I am talking about supplying the components the Russian enterprise could no longer import. Such as reduction gearboxes, transmission gear, and other complicated components,” he explained.

In his words, about 50-60 sets of products are shipped to the Rostov-based company Rostselmash every month. It is necessary to ship more. According to Gomselmash Director General Aleksandr Novikov, the Belarusian company is going to ship 200-300 sets monthly. “It is also necessary to increase their output by several times in the future in order to satisfy our own demand and demand of the Russian manufacturer,” the prime minister noted.

Gomselmash Director General Aleksandr Novikov described the state of affairs at the Belarusian enterprise. Attention was drawn to the company's operation amid the pressure of Western sanctions, the need to replace imports, and future prospects.

Roman Golovchenko was made familiar with Gomselmash's current product lineup. Import substitutes were also on display. The head of government also visited a mechanical assembly division and the main line where grain harvesters are assembled.

Roman Golovchenko's working trip to Gomel Oblast will end with a visit to the military history complex Partisan Spring Well and to a site where the specialized search battalion of the Defense Ministry is working.
