New Belarus-EU projects to be launched in 2018

The head of the EU representation office in Belarus said that “Twining” is not the only mutual project of the EU and Belarus.

Andrea Wiktorin highly estimated the work carried out during the year, especially the joint projects in the economy sector. Not so long ago another bilateral meeting was held in Brussels, where the relations of Belarus and the European Union were discussed.

Andrea Wiktorin, Head of EU representation office in the Republic of Belarus:
Our meeting was very constructive. Of course, we spoke about politics, and about other sectors of cooperation as well0economy, finances, energy, and even changing of the climate. Cooperation agreements with the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development have been reached, including the agreements aimed at supporting small and medium businesses.

The realization of Twining will start from January 2018, and it is planned to be finished in 2019. The National Bank is the first agency to use this program. As for the prospects of Belarus-EU cooperation, new mutual projects are being developed and they will be launched in 2018.
