Nigeria and Belarus are considering the prospects of boosting economic and technological cooperation that will see Belarus build a one thousand-capacity tractor assembly plant in Nigeria.
This was the subject of discussion in Abuja when the Ambassador of Belarus to Nigeria, Vyacheslav Beskosty, paid a visit to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa.
Beskosty, after the visit, said there were no limits to the discussion as both countries considered any form of cooperation that would be of immense benefit to the people of both countries.
According to the envoy, Belarus opened its mission in Nigeria to seek and expand the beneficial areas between both countries.
On the plan for the assembly plant, he said it would be determined by how many tractors and trucks the Nigerian market could absorb.
He said the vice president welcomed the initiative of Belarus and expressed full support of the Nigerian government in the collaboration.
