MINSK, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Alexander Lukashenko has demanded that the government of Belarus step up the creation of a joint industrial estate with China.
The president stopped on issues related to creation of a Chinese-Belarusian industrial park. He demanded tightening control over its development and stepping up all works so that residents could get down to creation of production capacities,” Lukashenko’s press service said after the president’s meeting with Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich on Friday. .
Myasnikovich said that the construction of the main engineering facilities, including gas and electricity supplies to a northern site where new enterprises will be built, was expected to be finished this year.
The president and the premier summed up the results of an official visit by a Belarusian delegation to China. Lukashenko ordered the government to finalize all the agreements reached with the Chinese side, especially in the context of the forthcoming meeting of the prime ministers of Belarus and China. The Belarusian president believes that the meeting will help removing all the problems that exist in the trade, economic and financial spheres.
"Your meeting will be a vital stage in preparing a roadmap,” Lukashenko said. He explained that the document would consist of sections concerning trade, technological, political and humanitarian cooperation.
The China-proposed plan is a serious step aimed at supporting Belarus.
