Andrei Shorets, Chairman of the Minsk City Executive Committee (Minsk Mayor):
A great exhibition. This is a real gift timed to the City Day. I think the citizens of Minsk appreciated the event. Today we open the cultural and business center of Belarus in Moscow, at the Embassy. I think that we will make an offer of the ambassador to present this exhibition to Moscow residents. I think they will appreciate it and the embassy will accept this proposal.
