3 October 2019 → Forum of Regions of Belarus and Ukraine takes place in Zhytomyr
On October 3, the Second Forum of the Regions of Belarus and Ukraine started in Zhitomir, the "Minsk-Novosti" Agency correspondent reports.
The organizers have prepared a rich program. It for the first time includes an advisory council for business cooperation under the auspices of the chambers of commerce and industry of the two states.
The forum is attended by representatives of domestic and Ukrainian business, education and culture. The main topic of the meetings is the development of economic cooperation at the regional level.
For the 1st half of 2019, the mutual trade turnover amounted to more than $ 2 billion, and it is planned to increase this figure to 8 billion.
It is expected that the events will be held with the participation of the heads of both states. Earlier, Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky sent an official invitation to President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko to visit the Forum.
As A. Lukashenko emphasized, such meetings help build up the necessary inter-regional ties, primarily economic and trade, which are of key importance for the Belarusian-Ukrainian partnership.
The Forum will bring together not only industrial and trade enterprises of the Belarusian regions, but also higher educational institutions, masters of decorative and applied arts and cultural figures.
At the exhibition "High Technologies, Robotics, Mechatronics and Startups" within the framework of the Forum the Belarusian State University is going to present about 20 latest developments in the field of instrumentation and automation of technological processes. The guests of the Forum will be offered new substances and materials, developped within the walls of the University, that can be fit for industry, pharmaceuticals and aerospace technologies.
In addition, as BelTA reports, during the Forum, Belarusian Pinsk and Ukrainian Ternopol are planning to sign an agreement on cooperation and partnership. The basis for the signing of the document was the active cooperation of the Polesie State University and the Ternopil National Economic University, within the framework of which the two universities exchanged students and organized joint scientific conferences.
