The China Development Bank will provide an equivalent amount of 2 billion euros (2.4 billion U.S. dollars) as development-oriented financial cooperation loans, Li said in a keynote speech to the seventh China-CEEC Economic and Trade Forum.
"It is clear for us that European countries also need to pay special attention to the renewal of the pan-European dialogue in security. Therefore, Belarus has come up with an initiative to organize the new Helsinki process to identify common principles and goals to strengthen confidence,” Andrei Kobyakov said.
The new contract for appointment of the director general was signed on behalf of the UNIDO member states by Belarus' Permanent Representative to the international organizations in Vienna Alena Kupchyna.
Alena Kupchyna will serve as Chairperson until the next session of the UNIDO General Conference which is due to take place in 2019. The representative of Belarus has been elected the head of the session of the main political bodies of the UN universal international organizations for the first time.
The state and prospects of implementing the Eastern Partnership Initiative taking into account the current situation in the region and common challenges facing the European Union and eastern partners were discussed during the summit in Brussels.
Vladimir Makei stated that for now the Eastern Partnership Initiative means very little for regular citizens. It is necessary to fill this initiative with concrete projects such as the development of border infrastructure, transit corridors, and the establishment of enterprises, which will help create jobs among other things.
