Russia’s Kurgan Oblast invites Belarus to cooperate in agriculture, manufacturing, medicine

MINSK, 13 October (BelTA) – Russia’s Kurgan Oblast and Belarus can cooperate in the agricultural industry, manufacturing, and medicine, Kurgan Oblast Governor Aleksei Kokorin said as he met with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko on 13 October, BelTA has learned.

“The sales market for your tractors has shrunk considerably in our region. We do not like it because they are very popular with our agrarians and we used to buy many Belarusian tractors. However, certain difficulties emerged because of the lack of service maintenance. We would like our enterprises to conclude agreements to launch service maintenance in Kurgan Oblast. Thus, we would meet the demand of Ural Federal District and resume the sales of Belarus tractors,” Aleksei Kokorin said.

In his words, there are good prospects for the cooperation of Minsk Automobile Plant and Vargashi Plant of Firefighting and Special Equipment. “In general, we are now using Ural and KamAZ chassis. Of course, we would like to work with MAZ chassis. Therefore, it would be possible to boost the sales of your machines and our equipment,” the governor said.

Aleksei Kokorin noted that the cooperation between the Russian Ilizarov Scientific Center for Restorative Traumatology and Orthopedics and the Belarusian Research Center for Traumatology and Orthopedics is increasingly vibrant. “They have a lot of projects and ideas, regularly partake in research conferences. I think that these research institutions should deepen cooperation,” he said.

The governor believes that pharmaceutical companies of Kurgan Oblast and Belarus can also bolster cooperation. “We do not want our products to compete with each other, we would like to make products in accordance with a mutual agreement,” Aleksei Kokorin said.
