“We have proposals in the field of passenger urban transport. The development of electric transport today is not just a tribute to fashion, in our opinion, this is the main decision that will determine the structure of transport in the coming decades. We would like to offer our opportunities in this environmentally friendly transport sector,” Roman Golovchenko said. 

It is known that the possibility of resuming tram service is being considered in Tashkent.

“The Belarusian side is ready to provide comprehensive solutions with the necessary infrastructure, planning and supply of rolling stock. If such a decision is made, then we will consider the possibility of production in Uzbekistan,” the Prime Minister said.

The Belarusian side is also interested in developing industrial cooperation.

“There are already examples of such interaction. We are ready to develop projects for the production of agricultural, special, emergency equipment based on Belarusian solutions. Many of these proposals, advanced developments of Belarusian machine builders will be presented at the exhibition today,” Roman Golovchenko added. 

He also touched upon the topic of agriculture and drew attention to the fact that Belarus and Uzbekistan have a strong agricultural base and modern technologies for growing agricultural products.

We are ready to meet the needs for pedigree livestock, animal feed, premixes, veterinary drugs, and the creation of supporting dairy complexes,” the head of government stressed.
