Belarus ready to help set up joint ventures and develop industrial facilities in Moldova — as noted by President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, on meeting Moldova’s Prime Minister Pavel Filip in Bishkek, on September 16th
“You are aware of my sincere attitude to Moldova. Everything that I promised during my official visit to Moldova is being put into effect.” Mr. Lukashenko said.
The two countries have already established joint ventures in Moldova and they are now interested in organising new enterprises. “If you are interested in the relocation of our production facilities to Moldova, let your Government support us, and I guarantee that within a year we will be organising production in your country,” the President stressed. “We are also interested in localisation. We do not insist on bringing tractor parts to Moldova and organising screwdriver production there. We will do our best to make products in Moldova. The quality of these products is paramount.”
Belarus is also ready to deliver more food and oil products to Moldova, while promoting the development of agriculture and machine-building. “However, we are not interested in exorbitant prices. Belarus will always be a reliable friend of Moldova. The Prime Minister will reaffirm this position during his official visit to Moldova,” the President said. He added that the Belarusian market is open to Moldovan products, in particular, Moldovan wine. “The main thing is to ensure quality and avoid black market schemes as we take a principled stance on this matter.”
In turn, the Prime Minister of Moldova thanked Mr. Lukashenko for the meeting and confirmed the country’s readiness to develop partnerships with Belarus in various fields. “Our relations are developing positively after your visit to Moldova. It is very important to us,” he said. “In view of the speed of movement, we will definitely achieve success in the near future.”
