Minsk. Our special correspondent in Belarus, Pavel Chernenko. In Belarusian Ostrovtsa (Grodno region), a meeting of the Belarusian-Czech mixed commission on economic, industrial, scientific and technical cooperation took place yesterday.

At the meeting, representatives from the Czech company Metrostav a.s. declared an interest in taking part in the construction of the third line of the Minsk subway and ensuring financing to the tune of 300 million euros. The company is also ready to provide technology and equipment to ensure the fast and efficient construction of the tunnels.

One more Czech company - Mavel a.s. – is considering its participation in the construction of hydroelectric power stations (Beshenkovichsky, Verkhnedvinsky, Nemnovsky, Orshansky, Mogilyov, Shklovsky) as regards direct investment. From simple delivery and installation of equipment, the Czech companies often move on to cooperative ventures in the territory of Belarus.

123 enterprises with Czech capital are now registered in the republic, including 76 joint and 47 foreign enterprises. A number of capital-intensive projects are being realized with the assistance of Czech businessmen.
