In the speech the Ambassador of Belarus to Vietnam V.Goshin noted that Vietnam becomes a “bridge-head” for Belarus to tightening up in Southeast Asia and to exit jointly with its products to neighboring countries. In September 2019, the MAZ truck assembly plant was opened in Hung Yen province. For the near future there are projects on assembling of Belarusian city buses in Vietnam, as well as municipal vehicles for the needs of the municipality of Hanoi. Belarus is ready for more active development of joint ventures in Vietnam with a gradual increase in the level of localization, technology transfer and training of Vietnamese specialists. In its turn Vietnamese companies could more actively use the territory of Belarus as a “starting point” for entering the markets of the EAEU and Eastern Europe, for this Belarus is ready to provide the best investment conditions.
Following the event, a press conference was held.
