Belarus, Georgia aim to reach $200m in trade by 2020

MINSK, 31 January (BelTA) – Belarus hopes to reach $200 million in trade with Georgia by 2020, Belarus’ Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Rusy said at a meeting of the Belarus-Georgia intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation on 31 January, BelTA has learned.

“Belarus and Georgia have been steadily developing their relations. We have never had conflicts between the nations and governments. We have always found the opportunity to work with each other. The heads of state have set a goal to reach at least $200 million in bilateral trade by 2020,” said Mikhail Rusy.

In his words, Belarus and Georgia have recently intensified bilateral relations, including in the economic sector. Mikhail Rusy stressed that the sides have always found a way to promptly address any emerging issues. “The growth of trade of 60% in 2016, the results we achieved in 2017 give reasons to believe that we will close this year with the trade of $126-127 million. We will work hard this year and will be well positioned to achieve the goal of $200 million in bilateral trade. We have points of contact,” the vice premier stressed.

Mikhail Rusy also welcomed the proposal to set up working subgroup in various areas to increase the efficiency of interaction.
