14.01.2019

Belarus is ready to promote comprehensive trade and economic cooperation with Hungary, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto. «Of course, we trade with each other and this trade hovers around $200 million depending on a year. This figure is minuscule taking into account our capacities and the way our economies used to cooperate in the past. We are ready to promote our trade and economic cooperation in all the areas», Alexander Lukashenko said. The president noted that it is necessary to take into account Belarus’ membership in the Eurasian Economic Union, the country’s good relations with China and participation in the Belt and Road Initiative. The first Belarusian-Hungarian agricultural enterprise, which will use Hungarian technologies for corn processing, will be established in Mogilev Region. The head of state also thanked Hungary for its contribution to the Belarus-EU rapprochement.
