Azerbaijan, Belarus: commodity turnover increased by 3,3 times in Jan-Sept

The Belarusian government intends to continue to cooperate fully with Azerbaijan, Belarus Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Rusy said at the meeting of the Belarus-Azerbaijan intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation in Minsk on 18 November, BelTA reported.

“The government of Belarus intends to continue active comprehensive interaction with Azerbaijani partners, including in the format of the bilateral intergovernmental commission, or in any other format. We will consider every project as long as needed and will always find a solution,” said Mikhail Rusy.

He expressed satisfaction with the momentum in trade and economic cooperation with Azerbaijan. The two countries' trade in January-September rose 3.3 times over the same period a year prior and amounted to $331.5 million. “Now we need to work actively on new joint projects to ensure that the growth trend in mutual trade is sustainable and long-term. We attach great importance to enhancing cooperation in the field of industrial and agricultural cooperation, the work of the Ganja Automobile Plant that assembles tractors, combine harvesters, MAZ trucks and other goods. Together we have set up a farm machinery industry,” Mikhail Rusy said.

According to him, the cooperation between the two countries will help promote the project to produce Belarus-Azerbaijan tractors in Turkey to a new level. “This is a new promising project of the three states. Its successful implementation will pave the way for our new initiatives aimed at the joint market development in the region,” Mikhail Rusy added.
