Alexander Lukashenko met with Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Prospective projects worth tens of millions of dollars were discussed at the meeting.
Next year, the Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant will supply off-road dump trucks to the UAE. Belarus is also interested in increasing export of food products and construction materials. Strategic projects are planned in the field of high technologies and military and technological cooperation.
Roman Golovchenko, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to the United Arab Emirates and the State of Qatar:
Belarus attracts the UAE with its potential in transportation and logistics. Of course, they look at the location of Belarus. One glance on the map is enough to imagine the effect produced by creation of large scale logistic enterprises in Belarus for trading with Europe and Asia, and bearing in mind the Silk Road.
