The prospects of the bilateral cooperation were discussed on 4 September during the official visit of the Belarusian delegation led by Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich to Mongolia. The parties reached an agreement to implement joint projects envisaging establishment of joint ventures.

The projects will involve Belarusian companies MAZ and MTZ. The machines made by these companies have been used in Mongolia since Soviet times. According to Alexander Ogorodnikov, MTZ has plans to set up a joint venture to produce energy efficient farm machines at the premises of a repair facility of the Defense Ministry of Mongolia.

The company to assemble MAZ passenger buses will also be located on the premises belonging to the Defense Ministry of Mongolia.

Minsk Automobile Plant was founded in 1944. In 2009 it was reincorporated into the public joint-stock company OAO MAZ. In 2012 OAO MAZ became the management company of the holding company BelavtoMAZ. MAZ offers over 500 models and modifications of freight vehicles and about 20 models of passenger vehicles.

Minsk Tractor Works was founded in 1946. Now it is affiliated with the Industry Ministry. MTZ produces more than 60 models and modifications of tractors and machines in over 100 versions and configurations for all climatic and operational conditions.
