MINSK, September 14 (Itar-Tass) — Belarus hopes to broaden its presence on ASEAN markets through the Common Economic Space, Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich told a Friday press conference.
“We can see vast opportunities in Southeast Asia, ASEAN countries. I think we have a rather good relationship with Vietnam, a regional center, as well as with Cambodia and some other states,” he said.
“We have reached a basic agreement with Russia to step up the drafting of a free trade accord of the Common Economic Space and ASEAN,” he said.
Southeast Asia “stands for 500 million residents and growing solvent demand,” he said. “We think we may diversify our exports thanks to that.”
