Armenia, Belarus to consider joint jewelry venture

Stepan Sukhorenko, ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of Belarus to Armenia, said recently that both nations are working to create joint jewelry-manufacturing facilities.

Ideas for cooperation were discussed at an Armenian-Belarusian intergovernmental commission session held in October, when  Armenian government representatives were able to provide descriptions of approximately 9,000 products. In this realm, the diplomat saw the potential for cooperation.

“The economies of Armenia and Belarus are complementary," Sukhorenko said. "Our goods are not competitive to each other. Products made in Armenia are not produced in Belarus and vice versa. I would like to name the jewelry industry as one of the breakthrough areas. The relevant work is underway. We have already received first results. We are first of all interested in setting up joint manufacturing facilities with a higher value added. We are also invested to the high-tech realm. We can achieve a lot with united efforts."

Sukhorenko also said increased tourism between the countries should be a priority for both governments.
