Information Evening on Belarus in the University of Ghent

On April 9, representatives of the Office for a Democratic Belarus took part in an information evening  at the University of Ghent (Belgium) organized by  a non-profit, non-governmental group “Pax Christi”.  The ODB director Olga Stuzhinskaya presented to the students of the university’s  Economics department a brief historical overview  of Belarus and described its present political and economic situation. The guests of the evening were highly interested in what the investment climate in Belarus is like, and asked questions about the current political situation, human rights issues, and the relations of Belarus with the EU and Russia.

The debate was followed by screening of the film Ploshcha (director: Yury Hashchavatsky).
