A modernized enterprise for the production of Belarusian tractors will be opened in Alexandria, Egypt. It was announced by the Ambassador of Belarus in Egypt Sergei Rachkov. Each year the enterprise will produce up to 2,000 tractors.
Due to the new production site Belarus will expand its presence in this area. The equipment will be shipped to both the Egyptian market and the neighboring countries.
Moreover, Egypt is interested in supplying Belarus' mining trucks to work on the new mineral deposits. In this regard, the experience and opportunities of Belarus in exploration and resource extraction will become a new direction of the two countries' cooperation.
Sergei Rachkov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus to the Arab Republic of Egypt:
The President of Egypt attaches great importance to the development of mineral resources. A very important national program is formed in this area. We are confident that our capabilities can be used here. The Egyptian side is very interested in our technologies.
