Venezuela, Belarus endorse agreements for development in strategic areas

On Friday, the Bolivarian Government endorsed a set of agreements to consolidate strategies for the benefit of Venezuela and Belarus and strengthen their cooperation relations and friendly ties.

At the Miraflores Presidential Palace, President Nicolás Maduro highlighted that Venezuela “is taking a step in the right direction, rhythm, pace and intensity” with the endorsement of agreements that will enable development in different areas.

These agreements are aimed at strengthening the production of food, trade, petrochemistry, and the reactivation of a truck and agricultural machinery factory in Barinas state.

“We are in a quest for the new non-oil economy with a high-quality domestic market,” said the Venezuelan president, who ratified that Venezuela must find the opening of international markets to increase the productivity of joint ventures and highlighted that 2021 was the best year for the country’s economic, social, cultural and sports development.

The endorsement of these agreements marks a roadmap between Venezuela and Belarus for the progress of projects, in addition to the consolidation of the country’s economy.

“We have decided to walk our own path. We are determined to be free, overcome threats, and build our own path with cooperation and integration with the new world,” stressed President Maduro.

In this regard, he explained that one of the agreements includes air transport between the two countries, providing for a connection between Belarus and South America and the Caribbean. “Venezuela connects to the world through Belarus to transport tourists and strengthen the real economy of the peoples.”

The goal of the Belarus-Venezuela Commission, established on December 15, 2021, is to analyze and strengthen projects in strategic areas such as agroindustry, science and technology, energy, infrastructure, transport, and housing, among other productive sectors.
