AKIPRESS.COM - Belarus may be involved in the construction of the second potash mining factory in Turkmenistan, Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Anatoly Kalinin said on May 10.

The Garlyk mining and processing factory was commissioned in Turkmenistan a short time ago. “It was one of the largest projects Belarus has implemented abroad in this field. Belarus has honored its commitments regarding the commissioning of the factory. We are now waiting for the final transactions in order to pay subcontractors and suppliers of materials,” BelTA cited Anatoly Kalinin as saying at the meeting of the Belarusian-Turkmen commission on economic cooperation. 

“We have also started discussing Belarus' possible participation in the construction of the second potash mining factory based on the Karabil deposit,” he said. The deputy prime minister underlined that the potential of Belarus-Turkmenistan cooperation is far from being exhausted and cannot be limited only to one or two major projects.

“It is necessary to use the accumulated cooperation experience to increase mutual trade across the board. We also see brand new prospects for interaction in oil and gas industry, in light industry, in road construction, in sales of diesel trains to Turkmenistan as well as Belarusian software,” he said. The deputy prime minister pointed out that Belarus is concerned about a slight decrease in the export of tires, trucks, agricultural machines, and passenger vehicles to Turkmenistan.

“The main priorities include cooperation in oil and gas industry, in science and technologies, healthcare, education, physical training and sport, and the expansion of humanitarian ties,” he said.

The eighth session of the Belarusian-Turkmen intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation is scheduled to take place in Minsk on 10-12 May.

Members of the Turkmen delegation are expected to also visit the train factory Stadler Minsk, the Minsk city mass transit system operator Minsktrans, the state enterprise National Center for Electronic Services, and the state corporation Belarusian Railways.
