The possible introduction of the EU sanctions against the Belarusian food supply is not a serious threat, says Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food of Belarus Alexei Bogdanov.
"We have not lost any market, thank God, so far we are doing well. The European market occupies a small share for us, we can easily replace it with supplies to markets in other regions," said Bogdanov at the Belarusian-Asian Forum in Moscow. The deputy minister is quoted by the state agency Belta.
According to him, the Asian market may become one of such alternative markets. In particular, he said that in the first four months of this year Belarus increased food supplies to Asian countries by 60% compared to the same period last year.
