Industry on the rise
By Anatoly Romanov
The Belarusian capital accounts for 20 percent of the country’s total industrial production, continuing to strengthen its position. Over the last five years, the manufacture of industrial produce and consumer goods has increased over 1.5 times.
High rates are ensured by the modernisation of production lines and the opening of new facilities. Such tactics enable us to enhance the competitiveness of Minsk’s goods at home and abroad. At present, Minsk’s enterprises supply their production to over 100 countries worldwide. For example, MAZ JSC exports half of its vehicles, Belkommunmash JSC sells a third of its items abroad, Atlant exports almost 75 percent of its output and Minsk Tractor Works sells over 70 percent of its goods elsewhere.
