The plans are stipulated by the memorandum of cooperation between the Belarusian company and China National Chemical Construction Corporation (CNCCC), the press service of Belarusian Potash Company told BelTA.
The three-year memorandum was signed by Director General of Belarusian Potash Company Yelena Kudryavets and CNCCC President Xia Qinglong when the delegation of the Chinese company visited Belarus.
