Parliamentarians of Belarus and Kazakhstan intend to actively restore goods turnover between the two countries. On March 16, the Belarusian parliamentarians met with Kazakh colleagues in the House of Representatives.
Thus the two sides agreed to step up work on exchange of experience in the legislative sphere. In particular, the guests are interested in Belarusian developments in the agro-industrial complex and IT sector.
However, the main topic of the conversation was trade and economic relations.
In terms of export volumes, Kazakhstan ranks among Belarus' top trading partners (third among Belarus' trading partners in the CIS).
Vladimir Andreichenko, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus:
In the field of trade and economic relations, our work does not correspond to the potential of our countries. We agreed we need to use our "deputies' methods" to increase efforts to promote trade turnover between Kazakhstan and Belarus.
Nurlan Nigmatulin, Chairman of Mazhilis of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan:
Kazakhstan and Belarus coordinate efforts to resolve all the problems in the bilateral format and within the framework of integration associations. And, of course, the primary task of the MPs of our countries in this case is to ensure effective legislative support of all decisions and arrangements of our heads of state.
The parties note that the inter-parliamentary relations between the two countries are on the rise today.
Working groups on cooperation are established both in the National Assembly of Belarus and in the Mazhilis of the Parliament of Kazakhstan. In addition, MPs cooperate tightly on international markets.
