Belarus Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov

Belarus trade with Russia dropped by $900m  in the first two  months of  2015 as the economic  crisis takes its toll, Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov said today, galvanising the country  to  look to ease its dependence on its fellow EEU  founding member. “The government has recently identified 56 countries as promising markets for [the country’s] products,” he  said, including China, India, Indonesia, North Africa and Latin America where combined exports had reached $100m in the past year.
