Being the owner of the company producing ceramic tile, the guest showed much interest in exports of ceramic tile to Belarus and Russia. When all potential markets have been studied and a steady partner is found, the company may invest into building in Mogilev region a plant on the analogy of the one «PAMESA» has in Brazil, Fernando Roig Alfonso added.
In his turn, deputy chairman of Mogilev regional executive committee Victor Nekrashevich noticed that the region has not only relatively cheap gas (it promotes 30% of ceramic tile manufacturing), but also significant supplies of raw materials for its production.
