MINSK - On October 10 the online videoconferences in the "question-answer" format have been held in National Centre for Marketing with broadcasting to the regions with the participation of Belarusian Embassies.
The business event was attended by representatives of more than 30 companies including Grodnomyasomolprom JSC, Molochny Mir OJSC, AGAT Management Systems OJSC, Belshina OJSC, Belvest JLLC, as well as specialists of higher educational institutions and health care institutions of Belarus.
One of the promising areas for the development of Belarusian-Indian cooperation is information technology sphere. Representatives of diplomatic staff of Embassy of Republic of Belarus in India advised Belarusian IT companies to establish contact with the non-profit industry association NASSCOM which shows interest in cooperation with Belarus. Belarusian goods may be in demand on the Indian market, but sales promotion is difficult because of the proximity of China.
Therefore Belarusian entrepreneurs must take an active part in specialized exhibitions where they can find partners and demonstrate the competitive advantages of the products.
In Georgia Belarusian goods are in great demand especially in the food industry. «We note the high growth rates of Belarusian exports since 2015. The absence of a language barrier, visa-free regime and air communications open up powerful opportunities for further increasing supplies», — said the Counselor of the Embassy of Belarus in Georgia Mr. Andrei Sokolov. As a promising field the diplomat named medicine, industrial automation, automation in the transport sector as well as the supply of auto parts, lifting and transport equipment, lifts, fertilizers to Georgia.
Senior Counselor of the Embassy of Belarus in Armenia Mr. Dmitry Semenovich recalled that in 2015-2016 the economy of Armenia has become stagnant. In the current year the situation has improved somewhat: GDP growth rates in the first half of the year exceeded 5%, and this is the best indicator among the countries of the EEU. According to the diplomat this market is not very large but there are prospects for work on it.
Azerbaijan is the most developed among the countries of the South Caucasus and, accordingly, the competition here is high, said Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Republic of Belarus to the Republic of Azerbaijan Mr. Gennady Akhramovich. «To win a share in the Azerbaijani market it is necessary to press out somebody on it. Attitude to Belarus is more than positive. Azerbaijanians appreciate honesty of Belarusians and Belarusian honest attitude to business», - the diplomat explained.
National Centre for Marketing together with the Embassies of the Republic of Belarus abroad conducts a series of online videoconferences in Minsk and regional centers in order to assist Belarusian exporters in the diversification of sales markets. Participation is free. The next videoconferences will be held on October 17 and will be devoted to the countries of Australia, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea.
