Belarus companies to hold exhibition in Kazakhstan


ASTANA (TCA) — Kazakhstan and Belarus, both being member states of the Eurasian Economic Union, need to explore joint innovative projects, Ambassador of Belarus to Kazakhstan Anatoly Nichkasov said at a press conference in Astana on August 9, BelTA news agency reported.


“We could take up two or three new joint projects. These could be projects, for example, in pharmaceuticals. Kazakhstan and Belarus have the manufacturers who could cooperate. However, it is not that easy to manufacture a medicine. To be more precise, putting it on the market is difficult. This is a product that requires lengthy testing and acceptance on the market,” the Belarusian ambassador said.

Ambassador Nichkasov said that Kazakhstan, Belarus and Russia could team up within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union and manufacture products for third countries. “These can be drones or joint research of outer space,” said Nichkasov.

The ambassador said that Belarusian producers actively cooperate with retailers and wholesalers in Kazakhstan. As Kazakhstan was gearing to host EXPO 2017 the volume of supplies from Belarus to Kazakhstan increased considerably, the diplomat noted.

The press conference of the Belarusian Ambassador was held in the run-up to the upcoming Belarus exhibition in Astana that will feature more than 70 companies representing various industries: machinery and petrochemicals, transport and logistics, agriculture and food, woodworking and light industry, information technology, and tourism.
