Silk Road project: Belarusian food products to be shipped to Khorgas

On May 16 Belarus and China cooperation was discussed in Minsk. Here an agreement was reached on the delivery of Belarusian food products to Khorgos. This is one of the projects on the new "Silk Road". It is located in the border zone of China and Kazakhstan. Here rules of duty-free trade operate.

Kaharman Jazin, head of the international cross-border cooperation center Khorgos (Kazakhstan):
This is an integral part of this project "One Belt". This is kind of a node, on which all this is implemented.

Of course, first of all, we are talking about food products, since the Chinese are very happy to buy food products from abroad.

First, they are more qualitative, they have different taste, and Chinese are also very curious. Within two or three months, the status of a special economic zone will be adopted. This actually means a completely tax-free, duty-free zone.

Belarusians can stay without a visa in this free trade zone for up to 30 days. This simplifies negotiations on future cooperation. This cooperation is fully projected onto the concept of "One belt, One Road".
