And behind each project there is an individual Belarusian who has made it, - said Ms. Tatsiana Aliakseyeva, Press and Information Officer, Operations of the Delegation of the European Union to Belarus.
After the opening ceremony, the guests visited the sites of the EU-funded and UNDP-implemented project Supporting the Transition to a Green Economy in the Republic of Belarus. The project provided for green transport on the grounds of the Radziwills' Palace and Park Complex for the purposes of ecotourism development. In addition to the electric bus, the project also provided the complex with 50 bicycles and 5 velomobiles. So far, the project is unparalleled in Belarus.
Ms. Olga Chabrovskaya, Team leader of the Supporting the Transition to a Green Economy in the Republic of Belarus Project mentioned that ''the lessons learned in operating electric transport by the Palace and Park Complex may also underpin the development of environmentally sustainable transport in Belarus.
The guests were also offered a visit to the Radziwills' Palace. It is worth mentioning that in 2016 the Niasviž Museum/Reserve received the Europa Nostra award in the Dedicate Service category. The award is granted for outstanding achievements in European countries that are not engaged in the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
