Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Venezuela to Belarus Franklin Ramirez Araque expressed interest in organizing deliveries of agricultural products to the Belarusian market via the Belarusian Universal Commodity Exchange (BUCE) as he visited BUCE's central office as part of a delegation of heads and personnel of foreign diplomatic missions.
Ramirez Araque: “A broad choice of tropical fruits is grown in Venezuela and exported to many countries in significant amounts. A major supplier of these products has recently contacted us with a request to help it penetrate the Belarusian market. Since about 23,000 Belarusian companies already use the exchange, I believe we will be able to find potential buyers here and establish regular deliveries as soon as possible. Naturally it is only the first step. In the future I suggest considering the possibility of exchange trade in other agricultural products between Venezuela and Belarus. I count on the Belarusian Universal Commodity Exchange's support and assistance in this regard.”
