NOWSHERA: The entry of Belarusian machinery marks a new era in the country’s earth moving sector, which is heavily dominated by players from Japan and the US.
The new dumper from ‘Belaz’ company was launched on Tuesday at the Cherat Cement factory, which has procured a 45-tonne dumper truck for transport of gypsum rocks and clay from mines to the plant. The company plans to buy up to fifteen such heavy machines in one year.
The principal of Belaz in Pakistan said there is a market of over 50 dumper trucks in Pakistan, mainly in cement and mining sectors.
Belarusian Ambassador to Pakistan Andrei Ermolovich informed that his country’s president has extended invitation to Prime Minister Imran Khan for a visit to Belarus, which is expected later this year.
“There is a huge potential for growth of ties in industry, agriculture, science and technology, military and technical cooperation,” he said, adding that he foresees joint ventures and exchange of advanced technologies.
