International forum "Innovations. Investment. Prospects" opens in Vitebsk

"Innovations. Investment. Prospects". The international forum with this very name opened in Vitebsk on March 19. It includes more than 200 projects.

More than a thousand people from 16 countries arrived to meet with potential partners. The business area gathered representatives of both former Soviet republics and businessmen from France, Italy, Germany and Sweden.

The forum started with the signing of a number of international documents. A cooperation agreement was signed by representatives of the free economic zones of Vitebsk and Kyrgyzstan.

Sergey Yurkevich, head of the administration of free economic zone "Vitebsk":
Kyrgyzstan enters the Eurasian Economic Union, so while Belarus is a bridge to Europe, Kyrgyzstan is a bridge to Asia. And the signing of these agreements once again confirms that Belarus, using a favorable geographical, geo-economic position, can contribute to the development of transit links and cooperation between Europe and the East.

The forum in Vitebsk runs through 20 March. In addition to discussion forums and exhibitions, there will be organized a business matchmaking session.
