The development of agriculture, cooperation and supply of engineering products is planned by Minsk and Novgorod regions.

The President discussed new projects today with the Governor of the region Andrei Nikitin. Belarusian contractors can also build residential  buildings and social facilities in Veliky Novgorod and other cities. Our companies already have similar experience. In general, the turnover for eight months of the year amounted to almost $ 65 million. By the way, this is the first visit to our country for Governor Andrei Nikitin.

Today, Novgorod Region has a population of 600,000 with a gross regional product of $4.5 billion. The region is part of the North-Western Federal District, and its capital, Veliky Novgorod, is one of the oldest cities in Russia. Except for tourism, the main export items include sand, peat, brown coal, even healing mud. The Belarusian dealer network of MTW, Amkodor and Belvest also operates there.
