Belarusbank signs export-import financing agreement with Austria
"Such a guarantee -- exceptional and unprecedented -- is a testimony of high trust in relation to our bank and the recognition of goodwill," Belarusbank's Board Chairman Sergei Pisarik said. "For us, this agreement is a new level of relations in the sphere of international business."
According to the announcement, this is a major step forward for Belarus and Austria. Pisarik represented Belarusbank in Vienna on April 28 when the agreement was signed. OeKB was represented by it's Director-General Rudolf Sholtenom alongside other banking officials.
The Austrian bank's focus is the development and promotion of Austrian industry and production in global markets, and uses insurance credits for exports to facilitate increased import and export activity.
