Lukashenko: Belarus-Moscow Oblast trade will be all-time high in 2023


The trade between Belarus and Moscow Oblast of Russia will exceed $10 billion this year, which is an all-time high, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Moscow Oblast Governor Andrei Vorobyov, BelTA has learned.

Moscow Oblast is a strategic partner for Belarus, the head of state emphasized. It ranks first among Russian regions in terms of trade with Belarus. Thus, in January-October 2023, the trade increased by almost a quarter to exceed $9 billion. “This is a significant achievement given that the base was already high last year when the trade expanded by over 25%,” the Belarusian leader remarked. “This year the trade is projected to considerably exceed $10 billion. This is the best result throughout the entire history of Belarus' cooperation with your region,” the president noted.
