Preparations for the Forum regions of Belarus and Russia, which will bring together the leading manufacturers of the two countries, are completing in Minsk. The large-scale exposition of the economic and export potential will start in early June 2016.
The central theme of the meeting will be social and humanitarian cooperation at the regional level. It is expected that the delegates will discuss the issues of health, youth policy, social protection, as well as add agreements and contracts in these areas to the existing portfolio. At the same time the agricultural fair BelAgro will take place on the territory of the former Minsk-1 airport.
Anatoly Rusetsky, Deputy Chairman of the Council of Republic of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus:
Our businesses, and the Russians, of course, will take part in this exhibition. Of course, there will be contracts signed. We hope that we will sign more than in Sochi in 2015.
This will be the third such forum of regions of Belarus and Russia. The previous one, held in Sochi, was dedicated to industry and was attended by over 300 industrialists. Сontracts worth over $250 million signed.
