Belarus plans to open joint car assembly facilities in Egypt

Belarus would like to set up joint car assembly facilities in Egypt. First of all, we are talking about specialized agricultural equipment. It is expected that the production of cars can meet the demand not only on the Egyptian market, but also on most of the entire African continent.

In addition, Belarus is ready to supply to Egypt its food products, in particular dairy products. At the same time, the main emphasis is not to simply trade but to proceed to deeper cooperation.

Vladimir Semashko, Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus:
We have already begun to implement the agreements reached earlier. Vehicle sets for tractors have been shipped to the joint venture. They will arrive soon and the first batch will be assembled there. We are ready to open a facility to assemble cars for various purposes - trucks, dump trucks, military vehicles, and buses.

On May 25, representatives of the two countries will discuss new areas of cooperation at a joint meeting of the Trade Commission.
