Belarus ready to supply elevators to Russia’s Pskov Oblast

MINSK, 18 February (BelTA) – Belarus is ready to participate in a program to replace elevator equipment in Russia’s Pskov Oblast. The matter was discussed during a session of the working group for trade, economic, scientific, technical, and cultural cooperation between Belarus and Pskov Oblast chaired by Pskov Oblast Governor Andrei Turchak and Belarusian Architecture and Construction Minister Anatoly Cherny. The relevant information is posted on the website of the Belarusian Embassy in Russia, BelTA has learned.

There are plans to install around 30 new elevators in Pskov and Velikiye Luki this year alone. Belarusian producers have shown eagerness to deliver the necessary equipment.

As for agriculture, the Belarusian side wants to buy finished agricultural products manufactured on the territory of Pskov Oblast.

Besides, plans have been made to continue bolstering the manufacturing ties between the enterprises of Belarus and the Russian region. Today Pskov Oblast companies supply to Belarus engines and components for vehicles, electrical equipment, high-voltage gear, handling equipment, sewing equipment, and other products.

Andrei Turchak analyzed the results of joint work and said that the trade between Belarus and Pskov Oblast has considerably increased in a number of areas, indulging transport and construction materials. A center of Belarusian building materials opened in Pskov. Cooperation in agriculture has been gaining momentum, especially with respect to the supplies of millet and barley. "This is an example to follow for other sectors," said Andrei Turchak.

For his part, Anatoly Cherny noted the positive dynamics in the development of cooperation between Belarus and Pskov Oblast, but stressed that a number of issues require further attention from both sides. “The adjustments are necessary in the context of the economic situation. We downscale our projects, and set the goals which are reachable today,” Anatoly Cherny said.

The two parties discussed the new areas of bilateral cooperation such as delivery of Belarus-made special-purpose road construction machinery to Pskov Oblast and also the expansion of the lineup of building materials. Anatoly Cherny promised assistance with reducing the prices for building materials supplied to Pskov Region at the initial stage.
