Diplomatic relations between Belarus and China were established in 1992. At the same time, the Chinese Embassy was opened in Minsk.
From 1993, Belarusian diplomats began working in Beijing.
During this time the Belarusian head of state visited China eight times. Chinese President Xi Jinping came to Belarus on a three-day visit in May 2015.
Sergei Kizima, Doctor of Political Sciences, Head of the Department of International Relations of the Academy of Public Administration under the aegis of the Belarus President:
China is experiencing an acute need for going beyond its borders in search of new long-term markets. And in this respect, of course, Belarusian policy aiming to develop relations with China currently gets its productive returns. We see more and more interesting contracts.
China now can give both new technologies and investments, through which these technologies will be introduced into production in Belarus.
