Belarus will start using Kaliningrad’s ports more actively
“Kaliningrad is the shortest transport haul for Belarus, that is why it is reasonable to transfer cargo through the ports of Kaliningrad region, — said Governor of Kaliningrad region, Georghy Boos, when visiting the country. — The Belarusian cargo’s access to Kaliningrad ports is the issue that should be solved with due regard to the interests of all the parties, in particular, Lithuania and Latvia, but Kaliningrad should not be out of the process”.
In the short run we can expect a rise in fish delivery from Kaliningrad.
Belarus, in its turn, is going to increase its export volume of building materials, timber and construction services. Besides, there are certain plans for cooperation in agricultural sphere. According to Georghy Boos, in the nearest future they are going to raise the trade turnover to $200 mln. This is an important step in the bilateral cooperation, but not the last one, remarked the Governor of Kaliningrad region.
