Belarusian companies sign 13 contracts after national expo in Georgia

Belarusian companies sign 13 contracts after national expo in Georgia

MINSK, 27 March (BelTA) – The recent Made in Belarus expo in Georgia has resulted in 13 contracts for the delivery of Belarusian products, BelTA learned from Chairman of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BelCCI) Vladimir Ulakhovich on 27 March.

The total sum of the contracts was not specified, yet Vladimir Ulakhovich believes the national expo was a success.

Vladimir Ulakhovich spoke in positive terms about the new format of arranging large-scale expositions of Belarusian products. “Made in Belarus sets a certain standard for demonstrating our products, our stands. It is a new country format we would like to continue developing,” he said. “We constantly work on improving the presentation of products. Coming and taking part is not enough. It is important to achieve results. Visual and interactive preparations are important.”

A Made in Belarus expo took place in Ukraine in 2018. This year’s Made in Belarus expo in Georgia attracted 73 Belarusian companies. Another expo featuring about 90 Belarusian companies will take place in Kazakhstan soon.

Vladimir Ulakhovich is confident that this format of work is effective and produces results. In 2017 events arranged by the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry netted contracts worth about $110 million. In 2018 the sum was multiplied by several times.

The Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry was authorized to coordinate Belarusian exhibitions and fairs abroad in line with the relevant presidential decree. “Exhibition activities acquired a new meaning for us. I am not talking only about organizational work. I am talking about logistics, translation, legal consulting, selection of business partners, and so on,” Vladimir Ulakhovich said.

Vladimir Ulakhovich is convinced that Belarus has a considerable potential to make quality and innovative products, but does not always advertise it skillfully. “For instance, the permanently open exhibition in the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus features stem cells, new technologies for crop and animal husbandry. Our drones beat Israeli competition in terms of flight distance and carrying capacity yet few people know about it. We have things to show but we have to learn how to do it in ways that would fascinate the general public and specialists alike,” he said.

For the sake of presenting Belarus’ capabilities in science-intensive spheres the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in association with the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus has come up with the exposition Intellectual Belarus. It will be used for the first time as part of the upcoming Made in Belarus expo in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Among other things the exposition will feature antitumor medications created by the Bioorganic Chemistry Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus using a full process flow. NPO Center will present centrifugal equipment for breaking and classifying mineral resources. The equipment can greatly improve economic parameters of manufacturing processes. The academy’s Materials Research Center will demonstrate new materials and products for outer space and aircraft engineering, civil engineering, healthcare, defense and security applications.
