Belagro’s growing popularity viewed as recognition of Belarus’ achievements in agriculture

MINSK, 5 June (BelTA) – Belagro expo has been held for many years and this is a kind of recognition of the leading role of Belarus in agriculture among the post-Soviet countries, Belarus Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov said after visiting the expo which this year celebrates the 25th anniversary, BelTA has learned.

According to the Premier, today Belagro can truly be considered as the landmark exhibition project of Belarus. This is the biggest exhibition in the country, which is not surprising as the country has set an ambitious goal to reach $7 billion in agricultural exports. Andrei Kobyakov believes that there are all preconditions to fulfill this task.

Because a country that is unable to manufacture and refresh the range of exhibition products will not be able to ensure wide participation and cause such a strong interest among foreign partners,” he noted. “Since Belagro is already 25 years old and the number of participants grow from year to year is a kind of vote of confidence, the positive assessment, including on the part of foreign partners, of the country and its achievements,” the Prime Minister said.
