The Zoomlion project covers an area of 200 mu (13.3 ha.) with a total investment of 50 million US dollars. It will become a localization-based R &D and production base of concrete machinery, engineering lifting machinery, sanitation machinery, and agricultural machinery.

“Belarus and China have continuously deepened friendship and cooperation in recent years to jointly accelerate implementing the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative. And the Zoomlion Industrial Park project is one of the best examples.” Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Semashko said, “We believe that, with the collaborative efforts of both sides, the project outcomes will not only enter the Belarusian market, but also quickly expand to the Eurasian Economic Union and the Eastern European markets.”
Hunan Secretary Du remarked that under the general framework of the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Belarus, Hunan will take the Zoomlion Industrial Park project as an opportunity to further enhance cooperation with local government and related parties. Communication and collaboration will be made in equipment manufacturing, energy resources, and transportation to share common interests and achieve a wider range, higher quality, and deeper level of mutual benefits and win-win results.
