On March 31, 2015, a BUCE working group took part in the meeting of the Belarusian and Arkhangelsk Region (Russian Federation) business community. The event was arranged by the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry jointly with Arkhangelsk Chamber of Commerce and Industry as part of the official visit of Igor Orlov, Arkhangelsk Region Governor, to the Republic of Belarus.

During the meeting, the Russian businessmen received detailed information about BUCE’s role in the domestic and foreign timber markets as well as about the procedure of holding exchange auctions for timber harvesting services.

The participants of the meeting were particularly interested in the operation of the electronic trading platform of industrial and consumer goods that, according to them, may help intensify bilateral trade between Belarus and Arkhangelsk Region.
