Rostec Corp. of Russia and Belarus' Svetlogorsk Khimvolokno held talks on Tuesday about establishing a joint venture.
State Secretary of the Union State of Russia and Belarus Grigory Rapota made the announcement during his one-day trip to the Gomel region, BelTA reports.
The joint venture would likely focus on the manufacturing of new composite materials to be used in a wide range of industries, including defense.
"It is necessary to analyze the progress in the implementation of the first stage of the program, to study the product we made, to decide whether the qualities of this product are worth the investments," Rapota said, according to BelTA.
