Belarus hopes for the development of industrial cooperation with India. The two countries plan to increase the trade turnover to $1 billion in the nearest future. This was stated by Belarus’ Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov at a meeting with the Indian Ambassador on the occasion of the completion of his diplomatic mission in Belarus. According to the head of government, during the work of Pankaj Saksena as the Indian Ambassador to Belarus, a good foundation for cooperation between the two countries was laid. In turn, the diplomat noted that warm relations have developed between the countries, which were further strengthened thanks to the visit of the Belarusian President to India last year.
