Hope for Belarus-Sudan large joint projects

MINSK, 29 August (BelTA) – Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko emphasized the hope for major joint projects between Belarus and Sudan at the meeting with Speaker of the National Assembly of Sudan Ibrahim Omer on 29 August, BelTA has learned.

The chairman of the House of Representatives noted that an eventful program had been prepared for the visit of the Sudanese delegation to Belarus. “You will have an opportunity to get familiar with the Republic of Belarus, visit the country’s companies and see the products we make. I would like to say that our goal is not only the sales, the supplies of these products to other markets. It would be great if during the talks and trips to our companies we elaborated proposals for cooperation and decided on the implementation of some large-scale projects. We are interested in this,” the speaker said.

Vladimir Andreichenko explained that the matter also pertains to setting up joint companies and assembly plants in Sudan. “First of all, we are talking about the equipment which is in demand on your market. These are our tractors, farming machinery, motor-vehicle construction, geological exploration works, cooperation in water services,” said the chairman of the House of the Representatives. In his words, special attention should be paid to the development of contacts in medicine, education and culture.

All the important issues of cooperation are included into a roadmap that has already been developed and submitted to the Sudanese side. Vladimir Andreichenko hopes that the current visit will contribute to a prompt signing of the document and give the start to more efficient cooperation.

The chairman of the House of Representatives believes that it would be great to hold a business forum in Belarus or Sudan, organize talks with businessmen, a business community and discuss the roadmap. He also stressed that the trade between the two countries does not meet the existing potential. “Stepping up mutual trade and cooperation in the humanitarian sector we would be able to discuss more actively the issues related to the opening of each other’s diplomatic representations in Belarus and Sudan,” the speaker said.

The Sudanese delegation is currently in Belarus on a visit. A wide range of issues have already been discussed with ministries and agencies. “I should say that all these issues are aimed at the sustainable development of Sudan and Belarus, and it is great that there is mutual understanding. All the talks are aimed, first of all, at enhancing the trust between our states, ensuring peace and security,” said Vladimir Andreichenko.

Ibrahim Omer thanked Belarus for hospitality and a warm meeting. “We believe that the visit is the continuation of the dialogue which took place in January 2017 during the visit of Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko to Sudan,” he said. Ibrahim Omer stated that the abovementioned visit at the highest level became a driving force for the development of relations between the two states.

The chairman of the National Assembly also took note of the importance of the meetings that were held between the members of the Sudanese delegation and the ministries and agencies of Belarus. He expressed confidence that these meetings will add a serious impetus to the development of bilateral relations.

The speaker emphasized the favorable geographic location of Sudan. “Sudan lies in the center of the African continent and its location is of high importance. Khartoum is a starting point to the north, west, south and east of Africa,” the head of the delegation added.
