MINSK – The Belarusian mechanical engineering company Bobruiskagromash intends to ship agricultural machines as well as spare parts worth about $500,000 to Kenya. The relevant agreement of intent was signed during the international food, hospitality business, and agriculture expo FoodAgro 2019 in Nairobi in early August. Bobruiskagromash presented its products during the expo, BelTA has learned.
Visitors were most interested in Bobruiskagromash's tillage machines, trailers and semi-trailers for tractors, forage-harvesting machines (mowers, rakes, and balers). Aftrade DMCC, Bobruiskagromash's official dealership in Kenya, arranged negotiations with potential buyers.
Participation in the expo and in business meetings allowed the Belarusian company to evaluate the real interest of African business circles in cooperation and sketch out further ways of advancing bilateral relations, Bobruiskagromash representatives told BelTA.
FoodAgro is part of Eastern Africa's largest exhibition event – the Kenya International Trade Exhibition (KITE). The Belarusian exposition was arranged by the National Marketing Center of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
