China is the most promising market for diversification of supplies of Belarusian products, Chairman of the "Belgospischeprom" food industry concern Alexander Zabello told local media on Thursday.

"We want to get into this market. Today China is the most promising market in terms of export diversification," he said.

Zabello stressed that China is actively developing, and the level of income, food consumption per capita is growing.

The official noted Belarus will have to compete with European products in the Chinese market. "After Russia imposed an embargo on European products, Europe has to actively seek markets in China. We are waiting for a high level of competition," he added.
