Belarus interested in more joint projects with Poland

Belarus interested in more joint projects with Poland

MINSK, 2 August (BelTA) – Belarus is interested in advancing comprehensive cooperation with Poland and in increasing the number of joint projects. Chairman of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus Mikhail Myasnikovich made the relevant statement as he met with Vice Marshal of the lower chamber of the Polish parliament Ryszard Terlecki on 2 August, BelTA has learned.

Belarus-Poland trade dropped a bit last year. Meanwhile, Belarus intends to invigorate mutually beneficial partnership with Poland primarily by implementing joint projects. “We are interested in more Belarusian-Polish projects,” noted Mikhail Myasnikovich. “Since we maintain a rather active stance in the Eurasian Economic Union, I think these projects would be profitable for the Polish private sector. By working with Belarus, you can work with 160 million consumers in the Single Economic Space.”

The head of the upper chamber of the Belarusian parliament spoke at length about the development of regional ties and suggested arranging Belarusian-Polish forums of regions. “On the whole, we have 65 agreements at the level of regions and cities. I think it is a good legal base that can produce its results,” Mikhail Myasnikovich was convinced.

Belarus interested in more joint projects with PolandApart from that, Belarus is interested in expanding scientific and technical partnership with Poland. At present Belarusian and Polish scientists are busy implementing 103 joint projects, including in agrarian science, humanitarian sphere, physics and mathematics.

Mikhail Myasnikovich also said he hopes that the current visit of the Polish parliament delegation will give a new impulse to interparliamentary cooperation. “Our relations between parliaments, in economic sphere, could be more effective in my opinion,” he said. “We believe that working discussions at the level of parliaments should be productive. There are no unresolvable issues on the agenda of bilateral relations.”

The Chairman of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus suggested discussing not only interparliamentary partnership but also Belarus-Poland coordinated work in international organizations.

Mikhail Myasnikovich also assured that the forthcoming parliamentary elections in Belarus will not negatively affect the dynamics of cooperation with Polish colleagues. “Working groups will be created by the House of Representatives and the Council of the Republic so that the formation of the new parliament would not affect our partnership, so that there would be no pause in our relations,” summed up Mikhail Myasnikovich.
