The Agreement is designed to encourage and promote bilateral trade and economic cooperation between Russia and Belarus and expand exports of the Russian carmaker.
To quote DaniilAlgulyan: “In recent years, the export potential of Russian manufacturers has significantly increased. Russian exporters tap into new product ranges and acquire experience of operating abroad. Decline in the ruble has also contributed to the competitive price advantage of domestic products. Our objective is to support Russian exporters and facilitate foreign market access for Russian goods”.
