Belarus, Armenia to develop liaisons in forest management
Belarus and Armenia will develop co-operation in forest management – as discussed during the 16th meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission on Trade-Economic Co-operation in Yerevan, where our country was represented by Forestry Minister Aleksandr Kulik, Co-chairman of the commission from the Belarusian side
Moreover, an agreement has been reached on the development of bilateral interaction in the area of forest management. The Armenian side is interested in our experience of reforestation, because the forest cover of Armenia today is about 12 percent while Belarus boasts more than 40 percent.
“There is a grand theme of reforestation on low-grade lands and bushed areas; 250,000 hectares is a huge area. This will require technology, finance, and resources. We are always ready to share our experience with our Armenian colleagues and will be glad to see your foresters in Belarus,” the Forestry Minister stressed.
