The Union State partners, Belarus and Russia, will in the near future meet at the second forum of regions of Belarus and Russia. It will be held Sochi in mid-September. On August 3, the upper chamber of the Belarusian parliament discussed preparations for the meeting of the business circles of the two countries.
More than 70 Belarusian enterprises will offer their products at the forum. They produce machinery, textiles and food products. By the way, the Belarusian exposition will be located on the Olympic site. Producers hope that it will become a starting point for lucrative contracts.
Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chairman of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus:
The Government of the Republic of Belarus has taken the necessary decisions regarding the conduct of de facto national exhibition. We need to discuss the exact terms.. Another issue will be the conduct of fairs.
Mikhail Myatlikov, Chairman of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry:
As of today, about 70 organizations will take part. This is a platform for improving image and signing contracts because the products will be there physically. Buyers will be able to be in the driver's seat and touch everything.
In 2015, the main theme of the forum will be industry. The development of the bilateral relations in the framework of the Union State and the EEU will be reviewed. The first forum of the regions of Belarus and Russia, which took place in Minsk in June 2014, was dedicated to the agricultural sector. Back then it gathered in Minsk more than three hundred delegates, including from 19 regions of Russia.
