As the press service of the first vice Prime Minister Serhiy Arbuzov informs, this was discussed during his meeting with the first vice Prime Minister of Belarus Vladimir Semashko.

"The main themes were further expansion of bilateral trade and new large-scale cooperation projects in fields of strategic importance to the economies of the two countries - energy, transport and agriculture," the press-service informs.

In addition, during the meeting the parties also discussed strengthening of the co-operation in the field of engineering and joint sale of products in the markets of the third countries.
