Co-operation should grow with good practical steps
Belarus ready to develop co-operation with Myanmar across all areas, notes President Alexander Lukashenko
“We’re ready to co-operate with you in all areas, from civil and military education to interaction in agriculture and industrial modernisation. You have huge mineral deposits and we’re ready to provide corresponding equipment for agricultural and mining enterprises,” noted the Head of State.
According to Mr. Lukashenko, 3-5 key industries could be the foundation for further interaction between Belarus and Myanmar. It’s essential to determine these areas on a bilateral basis. “We’ll build our trade-economic co-operation around these spheres,” said the Belarusian leader.
The President assured Khin Aung Myint that Belarus is ready to do its best to expand bilateral co-operation while developing new ideas and practical solutions. His guest responded that Myanmar is keen to develop mutually beneficial relations with Belarus, including possible access to the Eurasian Economic Union. Besides agriculture and delivery of equipment, there are opportunities for bilateral interaction in the spheres of education and tourism. A committee on co-operation with Belarus has been already established in Myanmar. “We hope to find a way to utilise co-operation potential between our countries in the near future. We need such reliable partners as Belarus,” said Khin Aung Myint.
