Lukashenko invites Georgia to pay attention to new initiatives

MINSK, 1 March (BelTA) – Belarus and Georgia should pays attention to new initiatives if they want to develop cooperation, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the extended negotiations with Georgia President Giorgi Margvelashvili on 1 March, BelTA has learned.

“If we want to develop cooperation, we should pay attention to new initiatives,” Alexander Lukashenko believes. “For example, in the near future Georgia plans to erect an ice arena and a biathlon stadium at the mountain ski resort Bakuriani. Belarusian design and construction organizations are ready to help you.”

The President added that the Georgian side can be interested in Belarus’ efforts to attract people to sport facilities, use their infrastructure for holding sports and public events. There are many contact points in the urban economy, development of municipal transport and utility services.

“New high-tech enterprises have been created in Belarus in recent time. These products are already available on the Georgian market. Stadler trains were delivered to Georgia last year. We hope that you will start using our transport equipment, too. By the way, we can establish the joint production of this equipment in Georgia. We can start with the shipment of the equipment from Belarus. In any case, it will be much cheaper than foreign analogues,” the head of state emphasized.

Alexander Lukashenko also deems it necessary to mull over the participation of Belarusian enterprises in the system of public procurement contracts in Georgia. This pertains to the production of uniform and the procurement of food for law enforcement agencies.

“As you can see, there are many projects of mutual interest. Our main objective is to use viable and responsible approaches to their development and implementation,” the Belarusian leader stressed. “If you are interested in our machine building, petrochemistry, oil refining, extraction of natural resources, we are ready to share our best practices, ranging from the seed materials in agriculture to space technologies, with you.”
