On 6-7 September, 2016, CCFL delegation of 11 persons visited Minsk. The trip was organised by the CCFL together with partner „France Group“. Despite the fact that all the participants represent different bussiness fields, such as retail, legal services, insurance, transport, logistics, timber industries, their common aim was to discover possible bussiness opportunities in Belarus.
The participants learned about the specifics of business in Belarus and current trends of Franco-Belarusian cooperation. The speakers Eugenia Bounoce, CEO of France Group, Michel Contini, French foreign trade advisor, and Daniel Krutzinna, Partner of Civitta, shared their insights and expertise. Yuri Klimenko, Deputy Honorary Consul of Belgium in Belarus, also took part in the discussion.
The pleasant atmosphere was present during the whole visit, and participants enjoyed themselves at the Barysaw stadium watching football match France-Belarus.
CCFL visit to Minsk was a great opportunity to share experience between francophone communities of the two neighboring countries and could lead to more intense interaction in the future.
