Representatives of the China-Belarus industrial park Great Stone outlined advantages of doing business in the park. Attention was drawn to free access to the Eurasian market, the availability of transport and engineering infrastructure, taxation preferences, which allow enhancing the competitive ability of the end product by paying less taxes and lower salaries by 2-5 times. The fact that energy rates have been reduced by 3-3.7 times was mentioned as well.
Representatives of the German private sector showed interest in the nascent cluster of automobile components in the industrial park. Projects to make supercapacitors, diesel engines, gearboxes, automobile glass, composite automobile components, land navigation devices, lidars, and other products are already being implemented in the park. Manufacturers of conventional vehicles and machines as well as producers of new electric vehicles and driverless transportation solutions need such products.
