Belarus to help with oilfield exploration in Sudan

MINSK, 26 April (BelTA) – Belarus will help Sudan prospect for oil. The Sudanese side expressed the relevant interest during the Belarusian-Sudanese forum in Minsk on 26 April, BelTA has learned.

According to Chairman of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Mikhail Myatlikov, for now the choice of Belarusian products, which are exported to Sudan, is limited. The exports are primarily agricultural machines, tires, and optical products. “Apart from trade Sudanese partners are interested in geological exploration primarily for the sake of oil extraction and in cooperation in the area of agricultural mechanical engineering. Belarusian companies — state-run and private ones alike — are also ready for cooperation,” noted the official.

The Sudanese side also expressed an interest in setting up an enterprise to assemble MTZ tractors. There is an interest in buying MAZ and Gomselmash vehicles.

The promising avenues of cooperation include light industry and pharmaceutical industry. Sudan is interested in buying Belarusian medications and medical equipment. The possibility of improving the qualification of Sudanese medics in Belarus is under consideration.

Held on 26 April, the Belarusian-Sudanese business forum focused on cooperation opportunities and the implementation of joint projects in the sphere of extraction, transportation, and sales of oil products, construction and designing, the production of ferroconcrete goods, steel structures, transport and logistics, consulting services, agriculture and agricultural mechanical engineering, food production, sales of various machines and equipment.
