The Brest Office of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BelCCI) will arrange visits of business delegations to Russia’s Samara Oblast and Bryansk Oblast, Yelena Pivnik from the chamber’s foreign economy told BelTa news agency.

“We are hosting representatives of Samara Oblast companies who have come to offer their products and services. We plan to organize a return visit in December. We invite Belarusian companies to visit Samara to showcase their products there. Another Belarusian business delegation will visit Bryansk Oblast in December,” Yelena Pivnik noted.

“The visits will be arranged in line with the Russian export promotion program. We urge Belarusian companies to take part in these events in order to establish ties with Russian partners,” she added.

The business delegation of Samara Oblast is in Brest on a three-day visit.
