MINSK, 14 December (BelTA) – Minsk will host the fifth session of Belarus-Uzbekistan intergovernmental commission on bilateral cooperation on 20 December, spokesman for the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dmitry Mironchik told a press briefing on 14 December, BelTA informs.

The sides will discuss the current state and prospects of bilateral trade and economic cooperation, interaction in industry and equipment supplies. Special focus will be put on collaboration in agriculture, light and food industry, healthcare, education, culture, interaction between Belarus’ and Uzbekistan’s regions and business communities.
