Prima: India is Belarus’ key partner in South Asia

NEW DELHI, 27 May (BelTA) – India is Belarus’ key partner in the South Asian region, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to India Vitaly Prima told BelTA.

“Over the years of the bilateral diplomatic relations, and it is more than 20 years, Belarus and India have built unique and constructive ties. The two countries are in an active political dialogue at different levels and support each other in the international arena. Today’s India is a country with the population of over 1.2 billion people and a large market with a big potential. Belarus views India as a promising and long-term partner in various spheres,” the diplomat said.

In his words, in 2014 the trade between Belarus and India exceeded $400 million. The Belarusian export reached $215 million. “Of course, it is not enough. We invest every effort in diversifying the Belarusian exports and increase the sales to the Indian market. Potash fertilizers account for a big part of our exports to India. We hope that this area will get its further development,” the Ambassador said.

Belarus’ trade surplus in 2014 totaled $27.4 million. Belarus’ main exports to India, apart from potash fertilizers, include trucks, synthetic yarn, hydrazine, oxides, cattlehide.

Belarus mainly imports Indian medications, fish fillet and meat, coffee and tea extracts, tobacco, leather footwear and rice.
