Press-conference summarizing the results of a familiarization tour for Israeli journalists

The conference “Cooperation between Republic of Belarus and Israel in the field of tourism” was held in the National Press Centre on the 3d of September. Among the participants were representatives of famous Israeli tourism mass media that visited Belarus in terms of a familiarization tour initiated by the Belarusian Association “Country Escape” with the support from the Ministry of Sports and Tourism and Israeli Embassy in Belarus. The Ambassador of Israel in Belarus Edward Shapiro and Vice Minister of sports and tourism Cheslav Shulga also took part in the conference.
