Over 50 companies from five countries are taking part in the international construction exhibition Budpragres 2021 which kicked off in Minsk on 14 September, BelTA has learned.

Indian ceramics is also on show. “The Indian province of Morbi is world famous for its ceramics. Wall and floor tiles, porcelain tiles in various sizes, sanitary ware and tableware are produced there. The province accounts for 90% of Indian and 13% of world ceramic production. Indian ceramics products are in high demand in the domestic market, but their export is relatively low. In Belarus, the interest in Indian ceramics is actively growing. That is why this year Indian manufacturers have presented their products at the Budpragres 2021 expo. A large delegation of Indian ceramics manufacturers has arrived in Minsk to find new partners in Belarus,” representatives of MinskExpo said.
