Keeping in mind the president's instruction to cooperate closely with Cuba, I am sure that we will implement our ambitious plans. The Cuban market is most interested in the products of MAZ, Amkodor, and MTZ. We also plan to ship Gomselmash vehicles. In general, all the products that are made in Belarus today can be in demand on the Cuban market. There are agreements and there are also many negotiation processes underway,” said Vitaly Vovk.

An agreement on cooperation between the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Chamber of Commerce of Cuba was signed at the opening ceremony. The Belarusian delegation is expected to hold a number of meetings and negotiations with the leaders of six Cuban ministries and government departments.
