Brest, Serbia’s Subotica set to develop trade, economic cooperation

BREST, 29 October (BelTA) – Brest and the northern Serbian city of Subotica have plans to develop trade and economic cooperation, BelTA learned from the Brest City Hall.

The relevant partnership agreement was signed during the visit of a Belarusian delegation led by Brest Mayor Alexander Rogachuk to Serbia. Another agreement was concluded between the Brest Office of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) and the Subotica Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The parties discussed further steps to strengthen cooperation and developed a draft roadmap. For example, the Serbian side is interested in export of its agricultural products and transit of goods through the territory of Belarus to Russia. For their part, members of the Brest delegation expressed willingness to invest in Serbian processing enterprises.

“The agreement will bridge our countries and help us develop the trade and economic cooperation between the regions. The people of Serbia consider Belarusians a brotherly nation. I expect this attitude will positively influence our business cooperation,” General Director of the Brest Office of the BCCI Valery Labun noted.

A return visit by a delegation from Subotica is scheduled for April 2016. Representatives of Serbian companies have been invited to take part in the international expo Brest. Commonwealth-2016. Valery Labun believes that the sides will identify areas of mutual interest by then.

The Brest Office of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has 60 agreements with foreign partners, and it continues to look for new ones. For example, a delegation of Brest Oblast businessmen will visit Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug of Russia in late November. Besides, it is expected that Brest will host the third Belarus-Croatia forum by year-end 2015.
