‘Belarusian neighborhood’ to open in France’s Villerupt on 6 November

MINSK, 26 October (BelTA) – A neighborhood built up with Belarusian detached houses will be commissioned in the French town of Villerupt on 6 November, Belarus’ Ambassador to France Pavel Latushko said answering a question of a BelTA journalist prior to the opening of the 5th Belarus-France Business Forum.

“In the near future, on 6 November, we are to commission a Belarusian residential neighborhood named after Gilibert in Villerupt [a commune in Lorraine]. It consists of detached houses made by Shklov-based Newsprint Mill,” Pavel Latushko said.

The ambassador noted that Belarus’ export to France is on the rise. So is the number of French companies operating on the Belarusian market; there are about 60 of them now. According to Pavel Latushko, it is important to increase the share of value-added products in Belarusian exports. Among them are furniture, light industry products and houses. There are plans to launch supplies of ceramic tiles and kitchen sets.

The Domostroenie branch of Newsprint Mill from Shklov signed an agreement with the French company SARL Logibat to supply about 60 sets of frame-panel houses to the tune of €1 million to France in 2018-2019. The document was signed during the 5th Belarus-France Business Forum in Minsk on 26 October.

France received the first two houses made in Shklov back in 2015. Since that time the Belarusian company has shipped over a hundred houses and other structures to France. The Shklov-based enterprise has plans to sell about 650 houses to France within the next five years.

The Domostroenie branch of Newsprint Mill is a technologically advanced company that operates equipment made by Europe’s best producers. It offers frame-panel houses, houses from glued beams, glued house-building beams, and various types of profile parts.

SARL Logibat builds settlements on the territory of France. All houses in these settlements are made of wood. The houses are supplied from Belarus.
