“Serbia is studying how best to set up joint ventures in Belarus to process vegetables and to manufacture juices, with further prospects to supply these goods to the country’s internal market and to Russia, Kazakhstan and elsewhere. Very soon, Belarus will be visited by Serbian entrepreneurs who are keen to study the issue,” noted the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Serbia to Belarus, H.E. Mr. Stojan Jevtic, when he visited Gomel.
Mr. Jevtic believes that Serbia and Belarus share a common natural problem: drought. Serbian scientists are ready to share their positive experience in how to solve this lack of water. “In particular, we can supply seeds for crops which require only short durations of rainfall,” added the diplomat.
Tackling the development of projects in the Gomel Region, the Ambassador said that Serbian businessmen are ready to invest in Rogachev’s Canning Plant, as well as setting up joint export-oriented manufactures in the sphere of processing agricultural, meat and dairy produce in the region.
