Despite restrictive measures

Belarus is keen to find ways to increase sales of agricultural equipment to the European market

Belarus is keen to find ways to increase sales of agricultural equipment to the European market

Belarus’ Deputy Foreign Minister, Alexander Guryanov, noted before the ceremony to award winners of the Republican Best Exporter of the Year 2014 Contest, “We’re in talks with European partners to expand sales of Belarusian agricultural machinery; Russia doesn’t import volumes as it used to. We’re also negotiating how best to maintain our position on the Ukrainian market, and have good prospects to advance on the Asian market.” 
Regarding exports, he comments that Belarus continues to battle some of the same problems it faced in late 2014. “Markets are affected, including by restrictive economic barriers, as have emerged between Russia and the European Union. Here, we face additional control and additional requirements for products,” explains the Deputy Minister.

Mr. Guryanov stressed that sales volumes abroad have remained steady, with a slight increase registered in some positions. “If CIS markets fall away, we can orient towards other directions in the same volumes or, even, slightly more,” he asserts.
