KORELICHI DISTRICT, 5 June (BelTA) – Governor of Russia's Kaliningrad Oblast Anton Alikhanov has outlined the prospects of cooperation with Belarus' Grodno Oblast, BelTA has learned.
A delegation from Kaliningrad Oblast paid a visit to Grodno Oblast, including to the Mir Castle Complex museum. Following the excursion Anton Alikhanov told the media about possible areas of further cooperation with the region.
“We saw a wonderful object, very careful attitude, meticulous and scrupulous restoration of all the details. The people who were involved in the project did very well. Interaction in personnel training is also very interesting to us. We are doing our best to involve a lot of objects in Kaliningrad Oblast. We have our features. Nevertheless, we are short of people who could actively work in this field. We will discuss with our Belarusian friends the possibility of training specialists for our region,” Anton Alikhanov said.
The governor of Kaliningrad Oblast added that Grodno Oblast is the closest region geographically. “Of course, it would be very important for us to solve a number of problems and tasks that have arisen now because of the transport issue. These are issues related to the international track. I hope to bring some joint ideas to the government and ask for support,” he said.
“Tomorrow we are going to hold a session of the Russian-Belarusian Council. The previous meeting was held in Kaliningrad in December 2022. There have been advances on a number of important areas for us, including the supply of construction materials and agricultural products. We would like to sum up the intermediate results with my colleague from the council and outline plans for the coming months, how we can achieve the indicators we have set, first and foremost in the trade and economic sector,” Anton Alikhanov said.
