Belarus has a lot of different industries that develop its economy. Things like big machines, chemicals, and equipment for farming are made by our plants. Belarus is known for making tractors, trucks, and other heavy machinery. The country’s machinery plants play a crucial role in national and international markets.

In our country chemical industry also produces fertilizers (удобрения), plastics, and synthetic fibers. These goods are essential for agriculture and manufacturing industries.

Lots of different foods from things like milk, meat, fruits and vegetables are made in our country. There are special places called food processing plants where these foods are turned into products we can eat, like cheese, milk, condensed milk confectionary and meat products. Belarus is known for making dairy products and also preserving fruits and veggies to keep them fresh for a longer time. People in Belarus not only consume these foods, but they also sell them to other countries. So our food processing industry makes delicious products to eat and also helps the country share its products with the world.
