Promising exception to the rules
Asian Pacific countries keen to expand co-operation with Belarus
The President of the Confederation of Asian Pacific Chambers of Commerce and Industry (CACCI), Jemal Inaishvili, recently attended a meeting at the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI). He noted, “We are interested in closer co-operation with Belarus. It’s the first time in the 50-year history of the CACCI that we’ve paid such a highlevel visit to a country not a member of our organisation and which cannot become so, for geographical reasons.”
BCCI Chairman Mikhail Myatlikov said that, at present, Belarus is developing trade-economic collaboration with 190 countries and stressed that those in the Asian Pacific region are of great interest to Belarus. “In our opinion, chambers of commerce and industry should work actively to develop co-operation between Belarusian and Asian Pacific businessmen,” he emphasised.
Mr. Myatlikov mentioned the Great Stone Chinese-Belarusian Industrial Park, saying that his delegation plans to visit the site very soon. “At the moment, the park is the largest project being jointly implemented by Belarus and China. It is open not only to Belarusian and Chinese companies, but to high-tech enterprises from other countries. The Great Stone Park provides unique conditions for doing business,” he pointed out..
