More than 70 agreements on cooperation and a portfolio of contracts worth $500 million are the preliminary results of the 5th Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia, which was held in Mogilev. It confirmed the effectiveness of such a format of negotiations, when integration issues are solved far from the capitals of both countries. Within a month, the organizers will decide on the choice of the host city for the next forum. According to the chairman of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus, this could be St. Petersburg. In addition, it is planned to expand its format - the congress of the creative intelligentsia will take place.
