The exposition included Belarus’ achievements in the fields of science, high technologies and education, including economic attainments and future potential. Belarusian vehicles, tractors, agricultural machinery and tool building equipment were showcased separately at the forum, which primarily aimed to raise turnover between our countries, while strengthening existing ties and establishing new contacts. National exhibitions abroad traditionally build a positive image, while enhancing our investment attractiveness and contributing to the further expansion of bilateral trade and economic collaboration.
Round table discussions were held, with Belarusian and Ukrainian business circles in attendance, in addition to seminars, presentations and bilateral meetings.
Ukraine is a strategic trading partner for Belarus, occupying second place among CIS states, and fourth among non-CIS nations. Over 100 Belarusian enterprises operate commodity networks in Ukraine, while five assembly facilities exist: two assemble Minsk Tractor Works’ tractors, one assembles lifts and the others produce Lidagropromash machinery and grain harvesters.
