Andrej Kobjakow, the Prime Minister of Belarus, stated at a meeting with Kronospan owner Peter Kaindl in Minsk/BY that Belarus is interested in new collaborative projects with the Kronospan Holding, according to deu.belta.by.

Between 2012 and 2016, more than € 870 million were invested in the Byelorussian timber industry.
