MINSK(BelTA) – The family of companies residing in the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone may grow larger with four new residents within the next several weeks, BelTA learned from Head of the Industrial Park Administration Aleksandr Yaroshenko.
According to the source, the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone is now home to 55 companies. The latest declared investments stand at $1.1 billion. Aleksandr Yaroshenko said: “We expect a Swiss resident to arrive by the end of the month. We intend to sign up another three residents during the Shanghai expo [the second China International Import Expo, which will take place in Shanghai on 5-10 November]. One of them has Belarusian-American capital.”
The official stressed that the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone is ready to consider investors from any country, including Cuba. Cuba President Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez visited the park on 22 October.
Aleksandr Yaroshenko remarked that Cubans are familiar with the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone project. “Our Chinese partners closely work with the Republic of Cuba. Respectively Cuban authorities are interested in this experience of work,” he said. “We already have our own experience and are ready to share it with our partners. With Cuban ones, too.”
In particular, according to Aleksandr Yaroshenko, the Cuban corporation BioCubaFarma showed interest in the park some time ago. “I believe we shouldn't lose the opportunity. We will consider and invite Cuban partners to work here if they show interest,” the head of the Industrial Park Administration said.
