Priority areas of Belarus-Uzbekistan cooperation named

MINSK, 1 August (BelTA) - Industrial cooperation and joint ventures are the priority areas of the Belarus-Uzbek interaction, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko told the media after the talks with Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev in Minsk  on 1 August, BelTA has learned.

“Our countries have good prospects for increasing cooperation in engineering, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, transport industry, and IT sector. We should prioritize deepening industrial cooperation, setting up joint ventures, and providing the most favorable conditions for the exchange of goods and services,” the president noted.

According to him, the existing agreements were discussed and the prospects for further cooperation were outlined during the talks with Shavkat Mirziyoyev,. “During the incomplete year since my visit to Uzbekistan, significant progress has been made in the relations between our countries. This was facilitated by a systemic interstate dialogue, including at the highest level. As my colleague suggested, the negotiations and meetings at the regional level will significantly revitalize our trade and will help increase its volume several times,” the president said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko believes that the 1st Forum of Regions of Belarus and Uzbekistan will become an effective platform for trade and investment cooperation.

“I sincerely welcome the successes of Uzbekistan. I absolutely understand the actions undertaken by the president to develop the country. The authorities are revolutionizing the industry, agriculture. It is not just upgrade of the country and the economy. These are new areas of life of the Uzbekistan society. Of course, this requires technologies,” the Belarusian leader stated.

The head of state noted that the technologies proposed by Belarus are available in other countries too. However quality, price, and responsible investors are as important. Addressing the Belarusian delegation Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “I promised the president (who did not choose Americans, Germans, Russians or Chinese but Belarusians) that we will never let him down and that he will never regret that he made a choice in our favor. Belarusian technologies are sufficient to upgrade and create a foundation for development of Uzbekistan. They are available in other countries  too but we have offered good ‘price-quality’ ratio and highest responsibility for this cooperation. We must make good on our word.”
