This was stated by the chairman of the Grodno regional executive committee Vladimir Karanik after a meeting with the delegation of Yakutia. It is noted that the two regions have a lot in common and already now have plans to implement joint mutually beneficial projects.
“It was an agreement that we appreciated and knew that there was a people friendly to us very far from us. Now the time has come to prove that distance is not an obstacle to friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation, “ said Vladimir Karanik…
The purpose of the official visit was to discuss an action plan for the implementation of trade, economic and cultural cooperation, signed in July this year. On November 10, an exhibition of products from Yakutia opened at the Stolitsa shopping center in Minsk. Residents and guests of the capital of Belarus can buy here jewelry, products from fur, leather and ceramics, Yakut honey and tea.
“The production volumes of the Republic of Belarus are colossal and at the same time 60% is exported. This speaks volumes.

We hope that the positive effect will appear soon ”, – said the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Yakutia. Artyom Alexandrov…
Permanent Representative of Yakutia to the President of Russia Andrey Fedotov note that there is a special relationship between Yakutia and Belarus, which have been bonded over many decades.
“In the Dzerzhinsky region of the Republic of Belarus there is a village called Yakuts. It can be assumed that people once lived there, who somehow happened to be on the Yakut land. Perhaps, in memory of this, the village got its name. This assumption will be confirmed, that this will be another confirmation of our deep ties, ” – said the head of the Yakut delegation.
The Grodno region is ready to share its experience in the field of woodworking industry, export and import of dairy products, health tourism, IT sphere and youth student teams.
“The Republic of Belarus is probably the only one of the countries of the former USSR that has increased its forests. We have experience in this direction. Yakut colleagues told about the events of this summer with forest fires, we are ready to share our experience. With great pleasure we will visit Yakutia as possible. We realized that the Yakuts are open and good people with whom we can do business. The human factor is the driver of our cooperation “, – Vladimir Karanik said.
