Spain, Sweden invited to expand investment ties with Belarus

MINSK, 2 October (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko offered Spain and Sweden to develop investment ties with Belarus as he received credentials of foreign ambassadors on 2 October, BelTA has learned.

“Belarus attaches great importance to relations with Spain, especially in such fields as trade, investment, industrial cooperation, energy, transport, and agriculture,” Alexander Lukashenko remarked.

Minsk will host the first session of the Belarusian-Spanish intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation in October 2017. The president expressed confidence that the meeting will help bolster bilateral ties. “It is about time,” the Belarusian leader said.

Belarus is also in favor of a friendly and constructive dialogue with Sweden and views this country as an active participant of regional and international processes. “You are our close neighbor. We learned a lot from you after the Soviet Union had collapsed. As for the bilateral relations, we should boost trade, expand investment ties, and intensify political and cultural contacts between our states,” Alexander Lukashenko added.
