BREST, 29 March (BelTA) – Businessmen from eight countries have submitted applications for participation in the international business forum Brest 2016 scheduled for 21-22 April, BelTA learned from the organizers of the event.

Pakistani, Italian and Turlish businessmen also show interest in the forum.

More than 70 cooperation projects will be presented to potential investors. Foreign partners will be invited to invest in such industries as mining, woodworking, and food processing, construction, agriculture, and tourism.

“We hope that the forum will be an interesting and useful event both for the investors and us. We have plans to sign a number of agreements to step up our cooperation with Russia’s regions and the countries of Europe.

It is no less important to further develop the production of building materials, especially clinker brick,” Deputy Chairman of the Brest Oblast Executive Committee Mikhail Serkov said and added that establishment of joint ventures and signing of agreements on loans for state-owned enterprises would also be a good result.

We expect that it will gather many of our partners. This will help us strengthen regional ties, first of all, through social projects.
