Why French businessmen are interested in cooperation with Belarus

The Mogilev region of Belarus is establishing trade and economic contacts with foreign businessmen.  

The Belarusian-French business forum is being held ther. To strengthen inter-regional ties, it was decided to hold it for the first time outside the Belarus capital Minsk. 

By the way, in 2017 alone the trade turnover between the Mogilev region and France grew by 40% - largely due to the cooperation of the Shklov plant with a housing construction company from France. Belarusian houses are in demand in France.  

Fabrice Raoul, Honorary Consul of Belarus in Marseilles (France):  
This is our first step. We hope for further cooperation, we will seek options for joint work. All the products presented to us in Mogilev are of interest to us. Because here quality at reasonable prices is what is suitable for us.  

Pavel Marinenko, Deputy Chairman of the Economy Committee of the Mogilev Regional Executive Committee:  
Today, the pace of Belarus' exports to France is more than 130%. We have a positive trade balance with that country. Basically, of course, this is due to Belarusian wood.  

French businessmen are also interested in textile and dairy products of Mogilev producers.
