Belarusian region Brest Oblast is keen in building trade ties with Pakistan through the export of its dairy products to Pakistan, it has been reported.
According to a statement issued by the embassy of Belarus on Tuesday, the interest was shown in a meeting between Brest Oblast Executive Committee Deputy Chairman Mikhail Serkov and Balochistan Governor Muhammad Khan Achakzai, who was on an official trip to Belarus.
Sekov said that groundwork is already underway for exporting $2 million worth of merchandise to Pakistan this year.
Sekov seemed hopeful that the Belarusian dairy export dairy would be able to secure a market in Pakistan and will pave way for other products. “I think other ideas for working together will also be discussed,” he added.
Achakzai, who was leading a Pakistani delegation, underlined the need for taking concrete steps to promote mutual trade between the two countries. “Belarus and Pakistan will reach a new level of mutual cooperation,” he remarked.
In the meeting, it was agreed that the two regions – Brest Oblast and Balochistan should establish contacts in the industrial, logistics, civil engineering, education and tourism sectors as well as other areas.
The delegation of Balochistan arrived in Belarus on an invitation of the Brest Oblast governor. They were expected to visit top companies in Brest Oblast and hold negotiations with their management.
The delegation is scheduled to meet officials of the Belarusian Industry Ministry also.
