TASHKENT, 12 September (BelTA) – Plans are in place to organize a forum of regions of Belarus and Uzbekistan in 2019, Belarus' Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Uzbekistan Leonid Marinich told the media in Tashkent on 12 September, BelTA has learned.
"We have taken our relations to a new higher level. This is cooperation between the regions and parliaments of our countries. Today we are working on the forum of regions of Belarus and Uzbekistan which will be possibly held in Belarus next year," the diplomat said.
The parties see great potential in the development of regional cooperation. Cities and regions know better what they need from an economic point of view. It is much easier and more effectively to solve these issues directly, Leonid Marinich said.
It is expected that a memorandum on the forum of regions will be signed during the official visit of Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko to Uzbekistan.More about Economy
