Belarus ready to share advanced agricultural technologies with Mongolia

MINSK, 26 January (BelTA) - Belarus is ready to cooperate with Mongolia in the field of advanced technologies in the production and processing of agricultural products, Belarusian Ambassador to that country Stanislav Chepurnoy said in an interview with the Mongolia News newspaper. The text of the publication is available on the website of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, BelTA has learned.

“In recent years, Mongolia has attached great importance to the development of its agricultural industry. Belarus has something to offer to Mongolian partners in this field,” said the diplomat.

According to Stanislav Chepurnoy, Belarus traditionally supplies agricultural machinery to Mongolia. Those were mainly tractors in the past. However, in the recent three years these have been combine harvesters, and units of various small agricultural machinery.

“Agriculture is not only about the issues of soil cultivation, crop sowing and harvesting which are solved through the supply of appropriate agricultural machinery. Having a well-developed agricultural industry, Belarus looks forward to working closely with Mongolia, including in the application of advanced technologies in the production, processing and storage of agricultural products, both crop planting and livestock breeding,” the Ambassador said.

He noted that bilateral relations between Belarus and Mongolia have been steadily expanding to include new areas of interaction.

The mining industry has an important role in the economy of Mongolia. This holds good prospects for cooperation with Belarus which is one of the world's largest manufacturers of mining equipment. Belarusian dump trucks BelAZ are used at most mining deposits in Mongolia.

The Ambassador also sees considerable potential for cooperation in science. “We are ready to develop interaction in fundamental science, and in applied research. Many of the achievements and experience of the Belarusian scientists can be applied in Mongolia. This is evidenced by the joint projects which are already implemented with the support of the national science funds of the two countries,” he said.

“We are proud that MAZ buses have earned positive feedback from residents of Ulaanbaatar. For a year and a half the Mongolian capital city has been using MAZ buses on the main route: Peace Avenue,” said Stanislav Chepurnoy.

In his words, MAZ is interested in developing further cooperation with Mongolia and meet the country’s needs in public transport, road construction, street cleaning, fire-fighting and utilities vehicles. Other Belarusian companies are also ready to step up supplies of haul trucks, farm machinery, lifts, railway and other technological equipment, tires and other goods to Mongolia.

“Belarusian partners are open to cooperation. Keeping in mind the difficult financial and economic situation in Mongolia, they can offer flexible finance terms in the form of lending, leasing and other mutually beneficial mechanisms, including via the Development Bank of Belarus,” the diplomat said.

Belarus’ other major exports to Mongolia include refrigerators, gas cookers, clothes, footwear, confectionery, dairy products, and pharmaceuticals. Their assortment is constantly expanding.

Stanislav Chepurnoy also confirmed Belarus’ readiness to develop cooperation in education and culture.
