Our countries and our peoples are bound by sincere friendship and fruitful cooperation in various fields. In the 25 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations Belarus and China have come a long way towards each other. There are no closed topics between us. We became strategic partners and we continue to move forward. A huge role in this process is played by the close inter-connection, which is confirmed by the arrival of the delegation from Hunan province in our country. I want to thank the head of Hunan Province Hu Henhua for his personal contribution to the establishment of friendly relations between Belarus and China. Your current visit has a special character. It takes place in the run-up to our summit with Chinese President Mr. Xi Jinping, scheduled for September. These negotiations should initiate a qualitatively new stage of China-Belarus partnership and the implementation of full-scale investment projects.

Regional cooperation should be developed between Belarus and China. We already have pilot projects in the Republic of Belarus. For example, the company ZoomLion has been working in your country for more than a year.
In the coming days, the Chinese delegation will visit several Belarusian enterprises, including plants in Minsk, Grodno and Mogilev. The interest has mutual nature.
