18.03.2013 19:55

MINSK, 18 March (BelTA) – A Belarusian-Italian joint venture may be set up in Minsk District to process vegetables and fruits. The information was released during the meeting of Minsk Oblast Executive Committee Chairman Mr Boris Batura with the delegation from the Italian province of Veneto on 18 March, BelTA has learned.

Boris Batura said: “Minsk Oblast is seeking a partner to build a vegetable-processing factory. The enterprise should not be large but the choice of processed products should be extensive, including tinned and frozen ones. The construction site is not far from Minsk. We are ready for cooperation on any terms, including via setting up a joint enterprise”.

The Minsk Oblast governor also remarked that the future factory will have sufficient raw materials. A month ago the tender was held for the construction of the enterprise, however, the results were unsatisfactory.

President of the regional state organization Veneto Promozione Mr Giovanni Franco Masello mentioned the possibility of setting up a processing factory and wished to get familiar with the requirements.

The Italian delegation includes businessmen, most of who are already experienced in cooperation with Minsk Oblast. They represent companies that manufacture agricultural machines, processing equipment, ferrous concrete products, metal furniture and other things. The businessmen expressed their interest in promoting cooperation with Belarus’ central region.

Boris Batura underlined that Minsk Oblast was ready to sign an agreement on cooperation with the region Veneto. He also mentioned preferences for doing business in Belarus.

Giovanni Franco Masello said that there are 500,000 companies in Veneto, which population is about 5 million people. The region turns out $200 billion worth of merchandise every year and accounts for 15% of Italy’s total export.

Giovanni Franco Masello said that the organization Veneto Promozione is designed to establish ties between multiple companies of the region with other countries. Economic growth relies on the synergy of people’s knowledge from various places, he said.

The Minsk Oblast Executive Committee Chairman remarked that European Union countries are considered strategic partners of Minsk Oblast. In 2012 Minsk Oblast’s trade turnover with Italy totaled $173 million.
