The 6th Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia is opening today in St. Petersburg. Participating in it will be the head of the Belarusian state Aleksandr Lukashenko. More than 600 people from both countries have already arrived in the northern capital of Russia. MPs, heads of various ministries and industrial enterprises, scientists and businessmen will discuss cooperation prospects for three days. Participation of Belarus in the projects run by the first Russian center of artificial intelligence is also on the agenda. The forum is expected to bring about concrete results. Contracts worth $540 million were signed at last year's Forum in Mogilev.
