EEC supports cooperation between Union countries in road-building and agricultural engineering


During a working visit to St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region on February 18-19, Artak Kamalyan, Member of the Board — Minister in charge of Industry and Agriculture of the Eurasian Economic Commission, visited the production sites of Kominvest-AKMT JSC and Petersburg Tractor Plant JSC.

The EEC Minister held meetings with the management of enterprises, discussed the prospects for cooperation and expansion of interaction with companies of the Eurasian Economic Union countries in road construction and agricultural engineering at the Commission's venue.

Kominvest-AKMT and St. Petersburg Tractor Plant are enterprises that are actively developing their production capacities and are ready for close cooperation with companies of other Eurasian Economic Union States. Agricultural tractors, dispensers of solid and liquid reagents, snow plows, patching machines and other types of products manufactured by these plants could become a serious basis for deepening cooperation within the Union. An example of such work is the joint project of the Russian PTZ JSC and the Kazakhstani Kostanay Tractor Plant LLP.

According to the EEC, the rational allocation of resources, use of potential benefits from the development of industrial cooperation is beneficial for all the Union countries. This will reduce budgetary and industrial enterprises’ costs for the production of agricultural machinery necessary for the country’s agro-industrial complex, as well as ensure the joint entry of the EAEU enterprises into the markets of third countries.

“We see a steady development of cooperation in the agricultural machinery industry and strive to deepen cooperation in other industries, for example, road construction equipment. We hope that the Tomez plant, which is part of the Kominvest-AKMT JSC group of enterprises, will also become an active participant in one of the general production processes in the Union,” Artak Kamalyan summed up.

As part of meetings with the management of Kominvest-AKMT JSC and PTZ JSC, proposals were made that will be considered at the Commission’s venue in order to further develop industrial cooperation in these industries.
