Belarus and Tatarstan are strengthening cooperation ties. Deputy prime ministers discussed future projects today in Minsk. By the end of the year Belarus and Tatarstan will present a jointly developed gas engine for tractors. The engine has been developed by Tatarstan and Minsk Motor Plant. The partners signed an agreement on cooperation in the field of science and education. A number of joint projects are expected to be finalized before the end of the year. They will be drafted for the upcoming meeting of the presidents of Belarus and Russia. The extension of subsidies for the production of machinery is among the current issues of Belarus-Russia cooperation. This will allow increasing the supply of products to the Russian regions in the future. Apart from that, the trading house of the Belarusian tractor maker MTZ in Tatarstan is supposed to use a new format.
