This was stated by Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission, on the Machine Builder Day of the Republic of Belarus.
“Despite the challenges that the industry enterprises faced under sanctions pressure, over the first six months of this year, the industry as a whole grew by 12.4%. At the same time, the increase in manufacturing industry output of the Eurasian Economic Union countries amounted to 6.1%, and to 2.8% in the industry as a whole, which indicates an accelerated growth of output volumes in mechanical engineering and the existing potential for industrial integration,” noted the Chairman of the EEC Board.
Mikhail Myasnikovich emphasizes that today Belarus is one of the main suppliers of harvesting equipment, tractors, machine tools and other special equipment not only to the CIS countries, but also to a number of third countries.
“MAZ, BelAZ, Atlant, Gomselmash, Minsk Tractor and Motor Plants, Mogilev Elevator Engineering Plant are established brands which products are in demand not only in the EAEU market, but also successfully compete with foreign alternatives in global markets, often surpassing them in terms of production and economic performance,” said Mikhail Myasnikovich.
At the exhibition held as part of celebrating the Machine Builder Day, Belarusian enterprises demonstrated several innovative models of equipment, such as an unmanned tractor, a line of modern MAZ vehicles, and Atlant and Vityaz household appliances.
On behalf of the Eurasian Economic Commission, the Chairman of the EEC Board presented commemorative awards to workers and veterans of the industry, thanking them for their hard and conscientious work and noting their high professionalism and responsible attitude. According to Mikhail Myasnikovich, these qualities allow Belarusian manufacturers to further develop the machine building complex of the EAEU countries.
