Belarusian products, technologies impress ambassadors of Latin American countries

MOSCOW, 11 April (BelTA) – Ambassadors of Latin American countries have been favorably impressed with the choice of products and services and the development of technologies in Belarus. They made statements to that effect after the presentation of Belarusian companies before representatives of diplomatic missions in Russia, including with concurrent accreditation to Belarus, in Moscow on 11 April, BelTA has learned.

In particular, Ambassador of Panama to Russia Miguel Barcenas noted: “We consider Belarus to be a great opportunity for all the countries in the world with that choice of products and services, the level of development of technologies. Today’s presentation is an excellent opportunity to start working together. We are not concerned about the distance between our countries. We have to increase mutual trade.”

The diplomat noted he had been first of all interested in capabilities of the Belarusian civil engineering industry and in drilling technologies. “I will definitely inform my government about what Belarus stands for today,” he promised.

In turn, Ambassador of Colombia to Russia Alfonso Caballero was impressed by capabilities of the Belarusian heavy machinery industry. “I was surprised when I was told that one third of the world’s haul trucks is made in Belarus. It is an excellent presentation. It demonstrated not only the industrial potential of Belarus, but also the scientific one.”

Alfonso Caballero drew attention to the presentation’s part, which had focused on education in Belarus. “The strong development of the scientific base in Belarus is accompanied by the strong development of the education system,” he noted. The diplomat also promised to forward information about Belarus’ capabilities to potential partners in Colombia.

About 40 heads and representatives of diplomatic missions from Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia, attended the presentation, which took place in the Business and Cultural Complex of the Embassy of Belarus in Russia.

The presentation featured information about the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and some of its largest members. The number included the Belarusian steel mill BMZ, the drilling company Delta, the Vitebsk-based lift truck engineering company ViPo, the dairy company Primemilk, AridGrow Production (deep peat processing to make products to cleanse soil and water surfaces from oil spills, to plant greenery in deserts and dry lands), and the International Relations Center of the Belarusian Education Ministry.
