Authorities in Belarus are interested in setting up a tractor assembly plant, among others, by working together with representatives from Georgia. The new plant would be built in Georgia, as per the agreement between the two countries. The terms of the joint project also allow Georgian authorities to open a store in Belarus, in order to sell agricultural products.
Georgia’s Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze and Belarus’ Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Rusy discussed the terms of the new contract, while also taking into account further development of their collaboration. For instance, the two state representatives discussed the possibility of setting up a joint venture to produce elevators, with Belarus exporting the finished products to Georgia.
Regarding further development of the transport of goods, the Belarusian and Georgian officials also wish to collaborate on a ferry connection and further transit options to ship goods through Ukraine. Mamuka Bakhtadze instructed its country’s authorities to work with their counterparts from Belarus, in order to resolve any logistics issues within two months.
