Border co-operation with neighbouring areas in Poland and Belarus takes

especially significant place in international relations of the Volyn

oblast. It was greatly favoured by setting up in 1995 a cross-border

association Euroregion BUG which incorporates the Volyn oblast in

Ukraine, the Brest region in Belarus and the Lublin voivodship in

Poland. Its activities contributed to creation of adequate border

infrastructure, strengthening economic collaboration, environment

protection, establishment of close ties between local self-government

authorities, etc. A programme of common actions within this cross-border

association is aimed also to ensure free and lasting co-operation

between NGOs, chambers of commerce, and businessmen.

border regions throughout Europe. Since May 1996 the Euroregion BUG is a

full member of the Association of the European Border Regions.
