Regional measurement of East Partnership

On the last days of September the first business-forum of East Partnership began in Warsaw. Within its framework the meeting of entrepreneurs and businessmen with the heads of the EU took place. It was devoted to the developing of the general approach to the support of private initiatives and development of enterprise in Eastern Europe under the crisis conditions. For Ukraine this forum is a verification by the action of its readiness to sign the agreement on a free trade zone with the EU, considers Henryk Litwin, the ambassador of Poland in our country.
However, East Partnership has its regional measurement as well. It is the conviction of the representative of Ukraine in the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe, head of standing committee on humanitarian issues Svitlana BOHATYRCHUK-KRYVKO. She is our partner in conversation.
