The heads of government will discuss the Concept of cooperation between the CIS Member States in the development of high-tech power-engineering equipment manufacturing and the Plan of major actions for implementation. Measures to protect forest reserves from natural hazards such as fire, pests, and diseases are an integral part of sustainable forest management. In this regard, the heads of government will consider the Agreement of cooperation in preventing and eliminating foci of forest diseases and pests in the border areas of the CIS Member States.
