Grodno Oblast-France trade makes up $9.8m in January-April

In January-April 2010 the trade between the Grodno Oblast and France totaled $9.8 million, 43.9% from the same period last year. The issues of boosting trade and diversifying all-round cooperation were high on the agenda of the meeting between Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of France to Belarus Michel Raineri and the authorities of Grodno and the Grodno Oblast in the Grodno oblast executive committee on 23 June. The diplomat has arrived to the Grodno Oblast on a two-day visit, BelTA has learnt.

In January-April the Grodno Oblast exported over $2.3 million worth of products to France. Its import made up $7.4 million. A decrease in the export was attributed to the reduced supplies of nitrogen fertilizers by the Grodno Azot Company (in January-April 2009 they reached $3.9 million). According to First Deputy Director General of Grodno Azot Denis Kolosov, additional duties restrict the export of liquid nitrogen fertilizers to France. He addressed the French diplomat with a request to raise a question on their removal.
