MOSCOW, 16 December (BelTA) – Belarus will take part in a number of large-scale construction projects in Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia, BelTA learned from the press service of the regional government after the visit of a Belarusian delegation led by Belarusian Architecture and Construction Minister Anatoly Chernyi to Kaliningrad on 15 December.

“The sides have determined the priority areas of cooperation that include, first of all, the preparations for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and implementation of many other large-scale construction projects,” the press service noted.

The Belarusian delegation visited the construction sites of Kaliningrad Oblast where Belarusian technologies, experience, and qualified specialists might be needed. For example, the Belarusians visited the construction site of the stadium that will host the World Cup matches and the Museum of the World Ocean currently under renovations. Some new buildings of the museum will be erected using sophisticated architecture and design solutions.

“Today we have learned about Kaliningrad Oblast’s ambitious plans regarding the construction of socially important facilities. The construction projects are complex but we are ready to share our experience and take part in them. In January we will develop a roadmap of joint activities,” Anatoly Chernyi said.

Deputy Chairman of the Kaliningrad Oblast Government Yury Fedyashov noted that the sides agreed on three main areas of cooperation. “The first area is structural design. Belarus has some good organizations and highly qualified specialists in this field. They also agreed to cooperate in the construction industry on a mutually beneficial basis. Finally, they outlined plans for the participation of Belarusian enterprises in the largest construction projects in Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia,” he explained.
