The idea to make diplomats acquainted with the work of Belarusian enterprises of different branches, with the first such branch-specific event being dedicated to woodworking and furniture production, was born during the Commercial Counselor Days the BelCCI holds annually in various regions of the country.

The BelCCI Chairman said: "This is an established practice, and I want to say, it is of great interest to the diplomats, since it implies direct contacts with manufacturers, an opportunity to see their technological level. Most importantly, this type of communication produces tangible results. I know of several examples when diplomats' visits to our enterprises resulted in contracts for the supply of Belarusian products."

While visiting Ivatsevichdrev OJSC, the diplomats got informed on the potential of Belarusian woodworking industry at the business briefing with the participation of the BelCCI Chairman Vladimir Ulakhovich, Deputy Chairman of the Bellesbumprom concern Alexander Pshenny, Deputy Chairman of the Brest Region Executive Committee Dmitry Gorodetsky, Chairman of the Ivatsevichi District Executive Committee Alexander Gritsuk, the leadership of woodworking enterprises. Besides, they toured the company's premises and studied the production of furniture and chipboard.

Also, the program of the event included familiarization of the representatives of diplomatic institutions with the production of furniture at Polipol Furniture Bel LLC, presentations of the Brestmyasomolprom holding enterprises and exporting companies of Ivatsevichi District, such as Domanovo Production and Trade Plant, Telekhany Joinery Plant, state enterprise "Belarustorg", D-Embrace JSC, visits to the T.Kosciuszko Memorial Estate Museum and the Palace of the Puslovskys in Kossovo.
