“We stand ready to further develop the construction of facilities to produce chemical and petrochemical products, household appliances, TV sets,” said the head of state.
“Next in line is the construction of cogeneration plants, natural gas pipelines, a huge number of homes in Venezuela," the President said.
According to Alexander Lukashenko, in the future Belarus may participate in the projects in Venezuela to develop the fields of natural resources, in particular phosphates and produce nitrogenous fertilizers in the long term. Being a big producer of potassium fertilizers, Belarus is ready to create a huge center in Venezuela to mix fertilizers and sell them across Latin America. The need for that is big, said the President of Belarus.
Alexander Lukashenko stressed that Belarus had started setting up joint trading companies in Venezuela.
“We have agreed with Hugo Chavez that by purchasing from you and producing minerals according to your laws, we will take an active part in the industrial development of your state. We are ready to contribute towards the development of a powerful industrial and agro-industrial complex in your country,” Alexander Lukashenko said addressing the Venezuelan reporter.
The Belarusian President stated that a number of companies and residential compounds had been built up in Venezuela with the participation of Belarus. “We are helping your economy to diversify. I am confident that we will obtain impressive results in the future,” the Belarusian leader noted.
