Happy to be in Belarus – Head of EU mission about MOST project progress


Interim results of MOST, an EU funded project to enhance people-to-people-contacts between Belarus and the bloc, have been assessed at Goethe Institute in Minsk on Thursday.

More than 600 people from Belarus had the opportunity to go to the European Union and take part in a number of conferences for stepping up personal contacts and gaining practical experience, Klaus Bayer, Head of the German-Belarusian Economic Club, said. According to him, the project has become a kind of travel agency that contributes to bridge-building between the countries.

These days the best way is communication, Head of the EU Delegation to Belarus Andrea Wiktorin believes. In her opinion, MOST gives Belarusians a chance to directly communicate with the European Union and various European institutions and agencies.

This is the first project of such kind about which I can say: I am happy that I am in Belarus, the diplomat stressed.

MOST is providing professional exchange and mobility opportunities for full-aged citizents of Belarus. Its core sectors are culture, education and youth, medicine, science and technology. Within the implementation period till December 2017, about 1.500 Belarusians are expected to avail of the opportunities offered by MOST.
