It is extremely important for Belarus and the Samara Region of the Russian Federation to look for new opportunities for expanding industrial interaction – as stated today by the President of Belarus during his meeting with the Governor of the Samara Region, Dmitry Azarov
“The interest must be full, and jobs should be created both in Belarus and in the Samara Region,” stressed the Belarusian leader. Aleksandr Lukashenko outlined the directions: technology transfer and export of services. Belarusian specialists are also keen on the research of Samara scientists and experts of the military-industrial complex.
In turn, Belarus is ready to share its accumulated experience in the development of the agricultural sector, can expand the range of food supplies, participate in the design and construction of social and industrial facilities, exchange scientific achievements and other technologies. There is also an opportunity to share best practices in road construction.
“It is acute for Russia. I know that you are in the top-20 regions which receive the most investments. The growth of injections from $3bn to $5bn is a big increase for the region. If you see the need for us to participate in some work in the area, we will be grateful and we will fulfil everything very responsibly.”
The President urged not to forget the economy and the humanitarian sector, the interaction of educational institutions, cultural figures, and work in the information sphere.
“It is necessary that people in Samara know how our people live while we must know how the Samara Region is developing. Therefore, we cannot do without the media.”
