Belarus and Japan are forging business dialogue. In the summer of 2017, 150 business leaders of Japan will visit Belarus. First of all they are interested in Belarus' experience in agriculture, high technology and instrumentation. The Japanese partners would like to find out more about pre-school education in Belarus.
Sergei Rakhmanov, chairman of the permanent commission for foreign affairs and national security of the Council of the Republic, Belarus' National Assembly:
Now the Japanese perceive Belarus as a developed country, with a high level of technologies. We showed it to them on the example of our advanced dosimetry equipment, which significantly exceeds the Japanese analogues. Now we are constantly exchanging visits.
The inter-parliamentary dialogue also promotes the bilateral relations. Belarus exports to Japan mainly potash, optics, lasers and fiber glass. Cooperation has been established in the scientific and humanitarian spheres too.
