Kobyakov: Belarus ready for transition to investment projects with Kyrgyzstan

BURABAY, 28 May (BelTA) – Belarus is ready to make the transition from trade to the implementation of investment projects with Kyrgyzstan. The statement was made by Prime Minister of Belarus Andrei Kobyakov as he met with Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan Temir Sariyev on 28 May, BelTA has learned.

“Belarus is ready to make the transition from simple trade, although it is also important, to investment cooperation. We are ready to develop our own assembly enterprises. The enterprises that have been established and work will have to be advanced to a brand new level. It is necessary to think about other kinds of machines that we could offer to our partners,” noted Andrei Kobyakov.

In his words, Belarus is interested in importing from Kyrgyzstan, primarily quality cotton. “Our light industry works. We would like to present competitive products on the global market,” specified Andrei Kobyakov. He also remarked that Belarusian specialists are ready to take part in the modernization of Kyrgyzstan’s sugar industry.

Andrei Kobyakov congratulated Temir Sariyev on the latter’s appointment as the prime minister and said he hopes that they would manage to advance trade and economic relations through joint efforts. “The trade and economic commission works again. It has things to take care of because, unfortunately, mutual trade has been falling recently. I think it is necessary to do our utmost in order to make the spheres and branches of key importance for mutual trade to reveal the potential they have,” he stressed.

In turn, Temir Sariyev assured that the governments of the two countries would continue working fruitfully, increasing the potential, and raising the mutual trade.

The meeting of Andrei Kobyakov and Temir Sariyev took place as part of the working visit of the Prime Minister of Belarus to Kazakhstan on 28-29 May. Sessions of the CIS Heads of Government Council and the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council will take place in the town of Burabay on 29 May.
