Golovchenko: co-operation between Belarus and Nizhny Novgorod Region has all conditions for further development
This was stated by Belarus’ PM Roman Golovchenko during his meeting with the Nizhny Novgorod Region Governor Gleb Nikitin
The Belarusian Head of Government stressed that the parties have no issues that are problematic or controversial and need to be resolved.
“This, indeed, characterises the degree of involvement of business, enterprises, and the governments of Belarus and the Nizhny Novgorod Region in solving those tasks that are planned to be settled within the framework of the documents that are signed between us,” Roman Golovchenko expressed confidence.
According to him, the same situation is reflected in the figures, “Direct deliveries alone exceed $700m. Moreover, it is very significant that exports and imports have approximately equal shares, respectively, foreign trade is balanced, being based on investment and intermediate goods. This is also characterised by the qualitative indicators of our mutual trade.”
The Prime Minister noted that interaction between the Nizhny Novgorod Region and Belarus is organic, since the parties have similar industrial structure and macroeconomic indicators (in terms of population), “All this creates good conditions for further development.”
The delegation of the Belarusian Government – headed by PM Roman Golovchenko – is making a working visit to two regions of the Russian Federation: Nizhny Novgorod and Ulyanovsk regions from February 1st to 3rd, and will also take part in the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council meeting.
In particular, the current visit of the government delegation to Nizhny Novgorod began with the acquaintance with the industrial potential of the region. Roman Golovchenko visited the automobile plant, where he was shown a line of GAZ vehicles and the enterprise’s main vehicle assembly line. At the Krasnoye Sormovo Plant, the Belarusian Head of Government got acquainted with the advanced shipbuilding technologies and the product line of the enterprise.
One of the highlights of the visit was the ceremony of laying a wreath by the Prime Minister of Belarus at the Eternal Flame Memorial in memory of Nizhny Novgorod residents who died during the Great Patriotic War.
