Thank God, we have withstood the competition on your market, in your land, and our machinery is in demand here. Especially tractor machinery – yet we occupy a significant part of the international market. This machinery is good. This is not the same machinery that was in the Soviet Union. This is new machinery, machinery of tomorrow, so we will be happy to work with you, supply, and not only supply - we already together with you produce this machinery here. And we agreed with the president that we will continue to act in this direction, — Alexander Lukashenko said on the air of the STV channel, — we will train personnel in Moldova to produce this machinery».
It should be noted that 95% of the machinery on the Moldovan fields is of Belarusian production.
