Russia seeks to import civil engineering services from Belarus

Russia recently expressed an interest in importing a variety of high-quality civil engineering services from Belarus.

Andrei Bakurov, the director general of Russian company Gopard, made the announcement on Belarusian TV channel ONT on Monday, BelTA reports.

"We are interested in the entire spectrum of service: designing, plastering, cement, architectural hardware, windows, doors and so on," Bakurov said, according to BelTA.

Meanwhile, Belarusian Architecture and Construction Minister Anatoly Cherniy said Belarusian companies are facing challenges in operating abroad.

"Their experience is insufficient a bit," Cherniy said, BelTA reports. "Major companies with serious management and marketing operate on the international market. It is hard to compete with those."

Still, he said, Belarusian exports of construction services has increased 134 percent from January to April of this year compared to the same period last year.
