Belarus President to Discuss Expanding Potash Trader With Putin

May 29, 2012

Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko plans to discuss expanding Belarusian Potash Co., the trading arm of Russia’s OAO Uralkali, with Vladimir Putin when his Russian counterpart visits this week.

Lukashenko is looking at “intensifying our joint work on selling potash fertilizers, as well as potentially expanding this company and assigning it more functions for selling nitrogen, phosphoric fertilizers, involving volumes from Russian companies,” he said in an e-mailed statement today after meeting with Belarusian Potash Director-General Valery Ivanov.

Belarusian Potash is a joint venture between Uralkali, the world’s largest producer of the crop nutrient by output, and the Belarusian state.
