bel-ukrBrest Oblast and Ukraine's Lvov Oblast are keen to strengthen cooperation. Appropriate agreements were reached during the visit of a Belarusian delegation to Lvov, Ukraine, BelTA learned from Brest Oblast Deputy Governor Gennady Borisyuk.

“Representatives of Lvov Oblast showed genuine interest in cooperation, we have something to learn from each other. In 2004 our regions concluded a cooperation agreement. Since then our relations have been improving steadily, but the document should be complemented with concrete projects. This is what both the parties want,” Gennady Borisyuk stressed. Representatives of the two regions agreed to draw up a roadmap for the existing cooperation agreement. The roadmap is expected to be signed in the autumn, during the 3rd Forum of Regions of Belarus and Ukraine in Grodno.

The delegation of Brest Oblast led by Gennady Borisyuk visited Lvov on 12-13 March. It included Brest Mayor Aleksandr Rogachuk, representatives of the Brest Office of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and several large companies. The delegation took part in the export forum and signed preliminary contracts to supply goods. The representatives of Brest Oblast also met with senior officials of Lvov and Lvov Oblast.

“The focus was on cooperation between the regional capitals. Brest is primarily interested in Lvov's approaches to tourism. The development of this sector is our priority, and we are eager to draw on Lvov's experience,” Gennady Borisyuk noted. “There are also other areas of mutual interest. For example, Ukrainian partners take interest in the experience of Brest Waste Recycling Plant and products of peat processing enterprises,” he added.

Gennady Borisyuk invited a delegation of Lvov Oblast to pay a return visit to Brest Oblast and to take part in the B2B Contact Fair Brest 2020.
