Belarus, Russia’s Kostroma Oblast sign memorandum of cooperation in media, information

MINSK, 30 June (BelTA) – Belarusian Information Minister Lilia Ananich and head of the information and analysis department at the Kostroma Oblast Administration Irina Zhabko signed a memorandum of cooperation in mass media and information, BelTA learned from the Belarusian Information Ministry.

The document was signed during the fourth Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia in Moscow. It envisages mutually beneficial cooperation in mass media, book publishing, printing industry, and the distribution of printed materials. The memorandum also provides for the exchange of book experts and specialists, media and journalists, and also for the participation in book exhibitions and fairs.

The Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia is held under the auspices of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus and the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of Russia. The event is dedicated to the development of Belarus-Russia interaction in high technology, innovations, and information society.

According to the Belarusian Information Ministry, this topic has been chosen on purpose. Today the focus of social conflict shifts from politics and economy to internet technology. In this context, the success of a modern state depends not on the financial and technical resources, but rather on the ability to manage the interaction of all elements of the social system who can bring forward new ideas and play a leading role in the development of innovations.

When speaking at the forum Lilia Ananich noted that public opinion is turning into a real political force that cannot be ignored. This is why the authorities need to be actively engaged in new joint projects, come up with new interesting initiatives and involve the younger generation in them, too.
