The parties discussed issues of expanding cooperation between the Minsk region and Russia, assessed the ongoing projects, identified the most promising areas.

- This is not the first meeting with the head of the regional executive committee, but earlier they were of a protocol nature. Now we have had a good talk, we got a concrete exchange of views, - noted Yevgeny Lukyanov.

According to Evgeny Vladimirovich, the prospects are seen when something is done. And cooperation between the two countries is based on mutual, respectful, beneficial interest.


- During such meetings, we try to identify these interests and contacts. Today we discussed a lot, but smoothly on paper, and we must not forget about the ravines. Now the opinions and information received must be put on specific analytics, collected and only after that we will be able to determine those vectors that both sides consider promising and favorable for implementation, '' the Ambassador of the Russian Federation emphasized.

- Recently, the Russian vector has predominated for me personally. Last week I was on a visit to the Russian Federation, met with the Minister of Agriculture and Food, the head of the post office. Cooperation with Russia, our main trading partner, is and is progressing well, - said Alexander Turchin. - The current meeting and negotiations is the acceleration of this movement. We need to organize new vectors of cooperation. One of today's topics is the revitalization of interregional interaction. In particular, we discussed with which regions it is possible to develop certain areas, agreed on a small roadmap.


Also, as the Governor emphasized, work is now underway on one very interesting Belarusian-Russian project in the field of business and agriculture, which is planned to be presented this year.

- This will be a demonstration project, both for Russia and for Belarus, an unconventional area of cooperation between our countries. I am sure that something meaningful and interesting will turn out.
