Over five years, trade between Belarus and Kursk region increased fivefold. Today, it is almost $250 million.

We are considering the enterprises of Belarus engaged in the production of agricultural machinery as the Kursk region has achieved significant results in the production volumes of grain. For this we need mechanisms, tractors and tillage equipment. Literally today or tomorrow, a number of agreements with four Belarusian companies will be reviewed and signed.

Sergei Popkov, the Minister of Communications and Informatization of the Republic of Belarus:
There are a number of significant events, which we plan to continue and start. This is primarily the further development of our joint production of trolleybuses, the possible participation of our builders in the construction of mining and processing plant and the supply of BelAZ trucks.
