9th Belarusian-Pomeranian economic forum: joint ventures now on the cards

Minsk Region is expanding cooperation with Pomeranian Voivodeship. A delegation from Gdańsk has been welcomed in the Minsk Regional Executive Committee for the 9th Belarusian-Pomeranian economic forum. Minsk Region has been in contact with the Polish region for a long time – a partnership agreement was signed seven years ago. Representatives of 16 companies visited Belarus in 2017. Their purpose was to learn more about economic and investment potential of the region.

Oleg Plavsky, vice-chairman of Minsk Regional Executive Committee:
Today we are successful in a robust trade in mineral fertilizers on the Polish market and we increase supplies to this market each and every year. We understand that the Great Silk Road, a Chinese project in which we see the point for growth of Minsk region, also passes through our countries. Today we are going to discuss all these questions.

The business circles of both parties are really interested in it.

To visit the industrial park Great Stone (it was called Chinese-Belarusian Industrial Park before 2014) and Nesvizh District is on the forum’s agenda. The guests will learn more about the agricultural potential of Minsk Region and about the way of developing pharmaceutics and recycling. An excursion to the Palace and Park Ensemble Niasvizh that is the witness of our common history became a separate item of the agenda.

Krzysztof Trawicki, Deputy Marshal of Pomeranian Voivodeship:
Our cooperation that started at a regional level is on a new level of business and joint ventures now. There are representatives of 16 companies in our delegation. The cooperation agreement between Slutsk and Tczew is already signed.

Pomeranian Vouvodeship is one of the leaders in terms of the number of ongoing twinning agreements with Belarusian administrative districts. Today Poland is Belarus’ third largest partner in the field of goods traffic and one of the ten investors in the economy of our country.
