MINSK, 28 March (BelTA) - The economic potential of Belarus, including the achievements in mechanical engineering, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and also information technology were presented at the workshop in Japan, BelTA learned from the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus.

The workshop was dedicated to the Belarusian-Japanese economic cooperation and was organized by the Belarusian Embassy in Japan with the support of the Japanese Nomura Research Institute (NRI).
