Interregional contacts as the basis for the formation of a common cultural and humanitarian space are the main themes of the 6th Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia, which will open tomorrow in St. Petersburg. The program also includes joint youth and cultural projects, the shaping of a common information space and the development of tourism. Particular attention is to be paid to business contacts. Trade prospects and existing problems will be looked into by national business councils. The results of the Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia will be judged by the net worth of commercial contracts. Last year in Mogilev it amounted to over $500 million.
