Belarus wants to increase its market share in Southeast Asian nations through Vietnam, PM Mikhail Myasnikovich told a press briefing in capital Minsk on September 14.
He said ASEAN is a prospective market of 500 million consumers and with its improved liquidity.
He hailed the fine traditional relationship between Belarus and Vietnam, a country that is keeping a central role in Southeast Asia.
Myasnikovich expressed his belief that Hanoi will support Minsk in speeding up the signing of a free trade agreement (FTA) between the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan and ASEAN.
He said Vietnam can be a gateway for Belarus to diversify and increase its exports to other Southeast Asian nations.
