Belarus is ready for a substantive discussion on all areas of cooperation. The statement was made by the President of Belarus the day before at the meeting with the governor of the Yaroslavl region. The emphasis was made on industrial cooperation. Agriculture, construction, and machinery supplies were among the main priorities. Minsk offers its participation in infrastructure projects and state programs of the Yaroslavl region. Last year’s mutual trade exceeded $ 350 million, which is more than with some foreign partners of Belarus. Joint ventures also operate in the Russian region.
