MINSK, September 14 (Itar-Tass) — Russian manufacturers have become Belarusian rivals on the Russian market, Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich told a Friday press conference.
“The Russian market is very attractive to us. We value that and we are grateful to Russian colleagues in the government and business entities for being able to operate in practically the same economic space with Russia,” he said. “Some problems exist, but deliveries to the Russian market are highly profitable.”
The premier noted that Russia had been lately increasing the output of commodities similar with Belarusian ones, farm produce, in the first turn. Russia makes more sugar, poultry and potato, Myanikovich said.
“The [Belarusian] government is aware of these trends and will keep them in mind,” he said. The Belarusian authorities will foster exports and back them with budgetary funds. That will be done to cut the expenses of Belarusian exporters, the premier said.
