Belarus and Russian regions
The cooperation of the Republic of Belarus with the territorial subjects of the Russian Federation is carried out within the framework of concluded agreements on trade, economic, scientific, technical and cultural cooperation (there are 79 agreements with 71 Russian regions). In addition, about 400 agreements have been signed between the regions of the Republic of Belarus and the territorial units of the Russian Federation of different levels.

The priority is given to the advance of industrial cooperation with Russian regions, the creation of joint assembly production. The Belarus enterprises establish dealer centers for the sale and maintenance of equipment in the regions of Russia. The farmers exchange their practices and technologies for the production of agricultural products.
The Belarusian builders build housing, social and industrial facilities in key partner regions (Smolensk, Kaluga, Kaliningrad regions, St.Petersburg and Perm territory). The experience of Belarusian road companies in road design and construction is in demand in Russia.
