Date: 03 March 2020
The Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry hosted a meeting of the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Armenia to the Republic of Belarus, Armen Ghevondyan, with the Belarusian businessmen.
Participating in the meeting were the BelCCI Chairman Vladimir Ulakhovich, representatives of more than 50 Belarusian enterprises interested in establishing and enhancing business ties with Armenian businesses.
The Belarusian businessmen were provided with the information on the most promising fields of bilateral trade and economic cooperation, the business environment and investment climate in Armenia.
The Ambassador noted that bilateral turnover of Belarus and Armenia has been growing recently thanks to concerted efforts of the two countries and the entrepreneurial spirit of the business communities. However, Belarus and Armenia do not use the full potential of cooperation. In his opinion, in addition to traditional areas of cooperation, the two countries should also greatly boost cooperation in IT, should promote and diversify interregional ties.
The Chairman of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry expressed the opinion that Belarus and Armenia need to develop industrial cooperation. "In cooperation with Armenia, we need to take into account its possibilities not only as a country with its own market but also as a country through which it is possible to promote jointly produced goods to the nearest markets. Cooperation is promising in such areas as mechanical engineering, woodworking, and food production. For our countries, industrial cooperation means mastering and implementing new technologies, providing logistics and marketing support in promoting products of Armenian enterprises to the European Union, and those of Belarusian enterprises to the markets of the neighboring countries," Vladimir Ulakhovich said.
Another strategically important area, in his opinion, is cooperation in IT, as well as in science.
Following the presentations, the Belarusian participants got the opportunity to ask Armen Ghevondyan and the Embassy representatives on matters of their interest.
