Silk Road drives economy
The centre of commerce, science, technology, education and culture of the Chinese Province of Gansu has opened in Minsk
Centre aims to promote implementation of projects
The Deputy Head of the Commerce Department of the Province, Zhang Shien, announced this during the opening ceremony. Over 1,600km of the Silk Road Economic Belt will go through Gansu. For centuries the region has been a vitally important corridor between China and Central Asia. This province was the ‘golden part’ of the ancient Great Silk Road testified by the numerous churches, monasteries, pagodas, towers and ancient castles situated along the Silk Road. In addition, a major part of the Great Wall of China is located there.
Zhang Shien stressed that the region is developing strongly. The biggest Chinese corporations are already situated there. One of these is the Wuwei Quansheng Corporation. The representatives of this enterprise have arrived in Minsk to establish ties with their Belarusian colleagues. Alongside contacts with Minsk colleagues, the company is also interested in interaction with Grodno partners. In particular, there are plans to implement Belarusian-Chinese tourism projects in Grodno. The two sides will also develop collaboration in agriculture, especially in the dairy industry.
An agreement on co-operation between the Belarusian National Technical University and China’s Wuwei Quansheng Corporation was signed at the opening ceremony.
