MINSK, June 10 (BelTA) — Russia’s Penza Oblast is actively establishing ties with Brest Oblast in Belarus, not only in agriculture, but also in logistics, said Alexandra Bessonova, head of the promotion center of exports from the Penza oblast, at BelTA during the Belagro 2022 international exhibition.
“We are working on a joint agricultural road Minsk-Penza-Harbin (China). We will be able to ensure the food security of our countries and enter the Chinese market together,” said Alexandra Bessonova.
According to her, cooperation between the Belarusian and Russian regions has recently intensified. “There is a very constructive dialogue aimed at mutual complementarity, the purchase and processing of raw materials. We check the equipment and skills of each of us. We have a common business mindset and approach – it makes work easier. It is understood that our countries must be present in the world market, including the Chinese market. In this regard, we are working on a more effective export strategy,” said the head of the export promotion center of Penza Oblast.
The Belagro 2022 international exhibition is taking place in the Sino-Belarusian Great Stone Industrial Park from June 7 to 11. The agricultural forum brings together not only Belarusian farmers and workers in the food and processing industry, but also their foreign counterparts and partners. This year, more than 400 companies from different countries, including Belarus, China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and others, are participating in the exhibition.
