Today the President of Belarus will leave for an official visit to Turkey. In Ankara, Aleksandr Lukashenko will hold talks with his counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Special emphasis will be placed on ensuring balanced trade and investment. It is expected that the discussion will focus on closer ties in the context of Eurasian integration, to which Turkey is showing increasing interest. The countries also prioritize joint ventures. One example is the construction of a plant in the suburbs of Ankara, which will assemble Belarusian tractors. It will be officially opened on July 1st, while now it is working on an experimental batch. The project is being implemented together with Azerbaijani partners. Belarus and Turkey are confidently moving from simple trade to investment and industrial cooperation. About 300 hundred enterprises with Turkish capital are active in our country. There are successful investment projects in telecommunications, construction and hotel business.
