The international company Japan Tobacco international (JTI) and the National Historical Museum of the Republic of Belarus have been actively cooperating since 2010. This year, an agreement aimed at organizing common events for preservation and presentation of the national historical and cultural heritage was concluded.

The partnership with the National Historical Museum has supplemented a number of large-scale international projects supported by the company. Among the vivid examples of the strategic cooperation of JTI with world-class museums, we can cite a long-term support of the State Hermitage and the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Russia, the Louvre in France, and the Prado Museum in Spain.
