This is what Deputy Minister of Industry Dzmitry Korchyk said during an online conference on belta.by on September 24.
“In the near future there will open a new assembly plant of Homselmash. Production of the first batch of machines – 75 units – is scheduled before the end of the year,” said the Ministry representative.
Other Belarusian assembly facilities in China:
JV Avik-BelAZ Mine Machines (founders: BelAZ and the company Avic International Aero Development Corporation)
JV Minsk Tractor Harbin Dongjin Co. (founders: MTW and the corporation Dongjin Group)
Harbin Dongjin Homiel Agricultural Engineering Enterprise (founders: Homselmash and the corporation Dongjin Group)
“Now these companies are experiencing certain difficulties due to the global crisis. Talking about BelAZ, the decreased amounts of coal mining lead to the significant reduction of the orders for mining equipment to China. But BelAZ, together with a partner, participates in the competitions for the supply of dump trucks. We expect that by the end of the year or early next year, the interest in the mining equipment will be restored,” said Dzmitry Korchyk.
