The MAZ-Weichai plant was built in eight months from scratch, on a previously undeveloped site. The enterprise plans to produce 20,000 engines a year, increase exports and recoup the investment in five years. It is possible to achieve, due to the fact that the plant is registered at Great Stone Industrial Park. The residents of the park have great tax benefits and international guarantees that working conditions will not change.

I can already see the results from working here. First of all, I really like the attitude - there is no bureaucracy, no extra approvals are needed for production and construction.

All the administrative functions are in one place. I came, gave all the documents - and even in the event that I am missing something or have some minor errors, they support me and help me to fix it. Everything is done quickly, efficiently and in a good way.

We note the comfortable conditions for doing business in Belarus, especially within the industrial park, where an excellent base for production of high-tech products is being created. Hence our interest in opening our own production facilities near Minsk. We believe that Belarus has many strategic directions for cooperation with China, especially within the industrial park. This project has good potential for the development of high-tech industries in your country.

Great Stone is one of the most interesting infrastructure projects along the Silk Road. The park is connected to the airport, the Baltic and Black Seas, with an area six times that of the port in Duisburg. The geostrategic location of the park is extremely beneficial for business in the context of the Belt and Road Initiative.
