In January-September, companies from China increased their activity on the Belarusian Universal Commodity Exchange ten times. The commodity structure was dominated by timber products. The surge of interest in the Belarusian Commodity Exchange on the part of Chinese business is due not only to favorable price environment, but also to convenient logistics that Belarusian exporters were able to offer. In the future, to further increase the attractiveness of the Belarusian Commodity Exchange, the possibility of introducing a separate trading session for the sale of timber products to China is being considered.
