Belarus, Uzbekistan moving on to manufacturing cooperation

15.07.2013 17:45

MINSK, 15 July (BelTA) – Belarus and Uzbekistan are making the transition from simple trade relations to manufacturing cooperation, BelTA learned from Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Uzbekistan Igor Sokol.

“Our countries are making the transition from simple relations to deeper manufacturing cooperation. Certain arrangements have been made by Minsk Tractor Works (MTZ) and the Tashkent tractor factory concerning the delivery of Belarusian tractor assembly kits for the sake of assembling them at the Uzbek enterprise. The first contract worth about $6 million has been signed and the shipment of tractor assembly kits began in late June,” noted the diplomat. According to the source, it is a fateful breakthrough in manufacturing cooperation between the two powerful enterprises.

According to Igor Sokol, certain progress has been secured in Uzbekistan’s cooperation with Belarusian Autoworks (BelAZ trademark). “BelAZ has been included into the government program for developing the Angren open-pit coal mine. Long-term cooperation for the delivery of quarry machines till 2018 is envisaged,” the Ambassador said.

The head of the Belarusian diplomatic mission remarked that the Embassy of Belarus in Uzbekistan had not been assigned any investment targets. “Uzbekistan is not a donor, it attracts money to the home market. As far as the shipment of Belarusian merchandise is concerned, last year [Belarus’] export to Uzbekistan rose by 50% to approach $95 million,” explained Igor Sokol.
