Belarus and Pakistan are currently in talks regarding the potential establishment of assembly and production plants for tractors and electric vehicles (EVs) in Pakistan. This was one of the central topics at a recent meeting between Belarusian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergei Aleinik and his Pakistani counterpart, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, on May 30.
The discussion primarily revolved around the expansion of economic and commercial cooperation between the two nations. Aleinik emphasized Belarus’ unique approach towards international partnerships, which extends beyond simple commodity exchange to encompass more complex, cooperative projects. Such collaborations, Aleinik noted, generate mutual benefits such as increased employment and technology exchange.
“In order to elevate mutual benefits, we are considering the development of assembly productions of Belarusian tractors and electric vehicles in Pakistan,” Aleinik stated.
Aleinik further highlighted that Belarusian companies have a keen interest in a range of sectors in Pakistan, including agricultural, mining, and road construction equipment, pharmaceuticals, and wood processing goods. In return, Belarus has expressed a demand for Pakistani products like textiles, rice, fruits, medical instruments, leather goods, and sports equipment.
Aleinik asserted that Belarus is eager to engage in honest and open dialogue with Pakistani business stakeholders across various sectors. He indicated that the strengthening of trade ties with Pakistan could pave the way for new opportunities in diverse industries, leading to mutually beneficial outcomes for both countries.
