MINSK - Belarusian producers of dairy and meat goods are facing with the problem of diversification of exports.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, in 2017 Belarus exported products to more than 80 countries: the EAEU countries, Asia, Africa, Middle East, North and South America. Dairy products were shipped to 44 countries. Russia remained the main customer, however, last year its share in total export of agricultural products declined by 4.9% to 89.4%.
Countries of the South-East Asia, Africa and other regions are promising for the export of Belarusian meat and dairy products. Chinese market is also been actively exploited. Thus, in January-November 2017 export of dairy products to China by Belarusian enterprises increased up to 7.5 times in quantitative terms to the same period of the previous year and amounted to 5.7 mln USD.
