Andreichenko provides details on Belarus’ 2024 international cooperation plan

MINSK, 31 January (BelTA) – The 2024 international cooperation plan provides important guidelines for the work of the House of Representatives, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko said at the meeting of the Council of the House of Representatives that took place at the government headquarters on 31 January, BelTA has learned.
Vladimir Andreichenko announced the discussion of eight bills at the meeting. “The 2024 international cooperation plan is a framework document that creates a good foundation for the work of the House of Representatives of the eighth convocation. The areas of focus will remain the same: the Parliamentary Assembly of the Belarus-Russia Union State, the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly, and the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly,” Vladimir Andreichenko said.
The chairman of the House of Representatives recalled that the Union State Supreme State Council summit that was held in St. Petersburg on Monday covered a number of conceptual issues. “The main one is centered around the fulfilment of the priority goals of the Union State Treaty. Foreign policy coordination with Russia was also discussed; the main concepts of the work within the framework of the Union State for 2024-2025 were agreed upon. A lot has been done in this regard over the past three years, and the tone for the work was set by the presidents of Belarus and Russia. Deputies of the Union State Parliamentary Assembly, the national assembly of the two countries, also made a meaningful contribution to this work,” he emphasized.

The speaker of the House of Representatives urged to pay special attention to the legislative work to create equal terms of operation for business entities and citizens of Belarus and Russia. “The efforts to ramp up exports to Russia also deserve a special consideration. The key thing here is to establish import-substituting industries together with Russia and set up joint corporations, enterprises, and promote industrial cooperation. These are the most important issues that the deputies will have to focus on,” he emphasized.
Vladimir Andreichenko added that it is necessary to continue work in the OSCE. “On 23-24 February, there will be a meeting of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Austria, in which we need to take part. It is necessary to work in the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, maintain our positions and defend them in the OSCE,” he concluded.
