Businesses need good logistics
Belarus and China have been studying the possibility of opening direct flights between Minsk and Gansu Province
The First Deputy Transport Minister, Yevgeny Rogachev, signed a memorandum on mutual understanding with the Head of the Aviation Department of the Gansu Provincial People’s Government. A direct flight between the province and Belarus will contribute to the further development of bilateral relations and Belarus welcomes the possibility of the launch of flights by a Chinese airline. Officials stress however, that time is needed to complete market analysis before the project is realised.
Whilst visiting China, the Belarusian delegation held talks with the heads of local ministries and companies, meeting the Governor and Secretary of the Gansu Province’s Party Committee. The Belarusians also met with the Head of the Beijing Hualu Info Technology Co. to study the system of transport management and possible Chinese developments in Belarus. While talking to representatives of China Road & Bridge, the delegation learned about high-speed highway construction. Our specialists also hope that exports of transport services will rise, as well as the popularity of Belarus’ transit potential.
The Belarusian delegation, led by Deputy Prime Minister, Anatoly Kalinin, was invited to take part in the 21st International Investment Fair in Gansu’s Lanzhou.
