A Belarusian enterprise producing agricultural machines will be established in Kaluga region, Russia, the press service of the Embassy of Belarus in Russia reported.
A Belarusian delegation led by Deputy Industry Minister Dmitry Korchik arrived in Kaluga region on August 23, with a working visit. The purpose of the visit is to study the region’s industrial and agricultural potential and discuss the organization of the joint production of agricultural machines.
During negotiations Kaluga region Agriculture Minister Leonid Gromov mentioned positive dynamics in the development of relations between Kaluga and Belarus. In 2014 the Belarusian government and the Kaluga region government signed an agreement on trade, economic, scientific, technical, and cultural cooperation. Interregional agreements on long-term cooperation have been signed with Grodno region, Gomel region, and Mogilev region. Belarusian-Russian joint ventures operate in the Russian region.
Dmitry Korchik said that plans had been made to use an industrial site in Kaluga region to set up an enterprise to produce agricultural machines that would be primarily sold on the Russian market. The project will be implemented in association with companies of the local agricultural cluster.
“First of all, the enterprise will make trailed and mounted equipment. This kind of merchandise is in demand not only in Kaluga region but in central Russia as well”, Dmitry Korchik said.
Leonid Gromov said that the region’s demand for modern drying equipment rose in parallel with the growing area under crops.
“Today we are going to discuss the concept of planned production, localization level, the choice and volume of products”, the Kaluga region Agriculture Minister explained. He said he was confident that the joint venture would make import-substituting machines, including forage harvesters, mowers, rakes and so on.
While in Kaluga region the Belarusian delegation also visited a number of infrastructure projects, including the industrial park Grabtsevo and the special economic zone Kaluga. (BelTA/Business World Magazine)
