Belarus plans to develop economic cooperation with Russia's Primorsky Krai, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Governor of Russia's Primorsky Krai Oleg Kozhemyako in Vladivostok on 13 April, BelTA has learned.

“I am glad that Belarus is going to develop economic cooperation with Primorsky Krai. We plan to work seriously here,” stressed the Belarusian leader.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said that during the Soviet Union Belarus was a high-tech region, an “assembly shop” with production facilities focused on the whole territory. “Too many production facilities were set up in Belarus then. If Belarus had been independent, we would have never set up so many,” he said.

Today a number of such Belarusian companies, for example BelAZ, hold significant shares in global production.

The president also praised the high level of academic science in Belarus, which has both fundamental and practice-oriented research and development.

“We have preserved a huge school from the Soviet Union. It covers everything from earth to space. I have supported these schools little by little. They turned out to be in demand,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.

In this regard, there is an opportunity to develop the relevant areas in cooperation with the regions of Russia, including Primorski Krai. “Belarus is not big, but we can transfer these competences to this land,” Aleksandr Lukashenko added.
