Third of Vitebsk Region’s export deliveries go to Russia

Despite the fact that, last year, the Vitebsk Region maintained foreign trade operations with almost 110 countries of the world, the Russian Federation has been and remains a strategic partner – as noted by Valentina Glebko, the Head of the Foreign Economic Affairs Department of the Economy Committee at the Vitebsk Regional Executive Committee

According to her, exports of goods to the Russian Federation are constantly growing, “Russia accounts for 32.3 percent in the total export volume of the region. The growth rate exceeds 116 percent. Food supplies have increased by almost a quarter, currently accounting for almost 27 percent of the total volume of goods exported to the Russian Federation.”

Thanks to new co-operation agreements with Russian regions and constantly expanding geography, industrialists from the Vitebsk Region conclude promising long-term contracts with foreign partners from the neighbouring country and already have a good portfolio of orders for 2023.
