Belarusian universal commodity exchange offers services for Turkmen companies

The customer base of the Belarusian universal commodity exchange (BUCE) includes more than 22 thousand companies from 63 countries, including 11 from Turkmenistan. Every year, it makes more than 300 thousand transactions worth 2.1 billion USD.

Today, almost all goods that form the basis of trade turnover between Belarus and Turkmenistan are represented on the trading platforms of the BUCE: 

  • food products (sugar, dairy products, vegetable oils);
  • woodworking products (lumber, plywood, wood slabs);
  • ferrous metal products;
  • building materials;
  • machinery and equipment.

At the same time, exchange trading allows you to purchase the necessary products directly from manufacturers or first suppliers, which provides more favorable conditions than when working under direct contracts.

The risk of non-delivery of goods or non-receipt of payment for shipped products is minimized, because:

  • only proven companies with an impeccable business reputation are allowed to bid, which automatically eliminates unreliable market participants;
  • bidders can additionally insure themselves against breach of contractual obligations by a business partner by using the exchange's sub-accounts for mutual settlements. In this case the seller receives payment only after confirming the acceptance of the product by the buyer;
  • the exchange has a Department for support of exchange transactions, which helps to resolve most conflict situations in pre-trial order;
  • if there are disagreements that cannot be resolved amicably, bidders can apply to the Arbitration Commission that operates on the exchange. It has the status of an economic court and promptly makes decisions on all disputed issues.

Thus, a Turkmen company accredited on the exchange receives the following main advantages:

  • an additional channel for selling goods is simplified access to the market of Belarus and the countries of the Eurasian economic Union.
  • saving time and minimizing marketing costs-the exchange accumulates supply and demand for products, eliminating the need to search for potential partners.
  • entering the markets of third countries - " transit transactions "can be concluded between two foreign companies (Turkmenistan – Lithuania, Turkmenistan – Poland, Turkmenistan – Ukraine, etc.) without the participation of residents of the Republic of Belarus.
  • control of transaction execution-the mechanism for supporting exchange transactions implemented on the BUCE allows ensuring full and timely fulfillment of obligations under exchange contracts. 
  • payment security – the ability to settle transactions through the exchange sub-account under the "delivery versus payment" scheme.
  • product expertise-the ability to order an expert examination of the product both at the stage of shipment and at the stage of acceptance.
  • exchange Analytics – up-to-date analytical information about the commodity exchange market of the Republic of Belarus.
  • electronic document management – the use of electronic contracts, invoices, and consignment notes.
  • free services – free electronic digital signature, training, software, transaction support, use of an exchange sub-account.
  • contact center – professional technical support and advice on all issues of participation in stock trading.

The Belarusian universal commodity exchange is open for cooperation and is ready to provide the necessary assistance to any Turkmen company interested in working in the market of the Republic of Belarus!
