"The foundation of friendship between our districts was laid two decades ago," I. Kudrevich said during the meeting. “In recent years, friendly relations between the Republic of Belarus and the People's Republic of China have been developing in many directions. The leaders of our states have created a firm basis for these relations, and our task today is to strengthen them by signing a Memorandum of Cooperation. In Minsk, there are a lot of large enterprises that may be of interest to our Chinese partners, so I propose not to confine to one of its districts only but, through Pervomaisky District, to cooperate with the entire Belarusian capital”.
In his turn, Chen Chongzhi noted that the dynamically developing Chaoyang district is interested in developing cooperation with Minsk and, in particular, with Pervomaisky District.
In accordance with the signed document, the parties plan to cooperate in trade, finance and scientific technologies, assist enterprises in establishing mutually beneficial economic cooperation. Besides, the parties intend to develop cooperation in the areas of education, health, culture, social security, sports and tourism and to promote mutual understanding and friendship between Belarus and China.
