On 4 October, the Belarusian capital, Minsk, hosted country’s national discussions within the framework of the EU-initiated Eastern Partnership Consultations.

Attended by over 100 representatives of the legislative branch, government authorities, business structures and civil society, the meeting looked at the short-term development strategy for the Eastern Partnership initiative.

The event was opened by Oleg Kravchenko, the country’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Ambassador Dirk Shuebel, Head of the EU Delegation to Belarus.

“The Republic of Belarus and the European Union maintain active and regular contact on integrated management of borders, energy efficiency, alternative energy sources, entrepreneurship promotions, finances and environmental conservation,” mentioned Ambassador Shuebel. “Indeed, it is easier to name the areas where Belarus and the EU have not collaborated yet, where we have not searched for new challenges and pursued common goals.”
