Belarusian leasing market will show a 15-20% increase in comparison with the previous year in 2010. Belarusian market showed slower rate of recession during the crisis period in comparison with the Russian market in this sphere, and 30% growth of Belarusian market is now expected. In 2010 under the terms of export leasing Russia received Belarusian cars and agricultural equipment with the total price of $3.5 mln. New contracts with Russia with the price amounting to $214 mln are currently being prepared. We have a number of projects with Russia where we have already entered the stage of signing the documents for hundreds of “MAZ” and “BelAZ” trucks, the volumes are considerable. During this year we have also realized Belarusian equipment for the total price of $8.5 in the Ukrainian market. We are also working with the markets of South Africa, Chili, Czech Republic.
