Plans to increase export of utility vehicles to Russia’s Primorsky Krai

MINSK, 1 March (BelTA) – There are plans to increase the export of utility vehicles to Primorsky Krai of Russia, First Vice Governor of Primorsky Krai Vasily Usoltsev said during a meeting with the Belarusian delegation, BelTA has learned from the press service of the region’s administration.

According to Alexander Bobtsov, head of the Belarusian embassy's office in Khabarovsk, the trade with Primorsky Krai made up around $13.5 million and can be much bigger. “We are interested in increasing the trade and we have all the possibilities for that. The current legal framework allows us to successfully develop mutually beneficial partnership,” Alexander Bobtsov said.

Our products are up to world standards. Today we are selling a certain amount of machinery to Primorsky Krai, but we would like to boost the exports. We are ready to find creative solutions to any possible problems.”

According to Primorsky Krai First Vice Governor Vasily Usoltsev, there are good prospects for boosting mutually beneficial cooperation. “We are ready to assist in promoting the company’s products in our region and increasing the trade between Primorsky Krai and Belarus at large,” Vasily Usoltsev underlined.
