MINSK, 7 December (BelTA) – Minsk will host the Heads of Government of the Central European Initiative member states on 12 December, spokesman for the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dmitry Mironchik told a press briefing, BelTA has learned.

Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldova, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia will send the high-level government delegations. “We are still waiting on the confirmation from a number of countries,” Dmitry Mironchik noted.

The main theme of the summit is the role of CEI countries in promoting compatibility and complementarity between the various integration processes in a greater Europe, strengthening pragmatic economic cooperation between different integration associations, joining the efforts in confronting new threats to the stability in the region.

The summit will adopt the CEI plan of action for 2018-2020. This is the main document of the organization. It determines the areas of project activities in the future. During the meeting the CEI chairmanship will be handed over from Belarus to Croatia.

With regard to the Belarusian presidency in the CEI, it was very successful, Dmitry Mironchik said. “This is confirmed by our partners. We also think that our results are very positive,” he said.

Within the framework of its presidency in the CEI Minsk hosted a CEI ministerial meeting in June. The ministerial conference on science dedicated to the development of biotechnology and pharmaceutics was also a success. This format was previously used in the CEI but was put on hold. After a long break it was restored by Belarus and proved its worth. For the first time in the CEI history Belarus held a meeting of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of the CEI member states.
