The first activities that led to the creation of the Euroregion BUG took place on the 30th April 1992. The Governors of Biala Podlaska, Chelm and Lublin Voivodships, the Governor of Lublin, the Ministry of Ownership Transformation and the Ministry of the Central Planning Bureau signed an agreement concerning financial protection of joint investments within the Regional Consortium. According to the agreement the main aim of the consortium was to develop and carry out economic restructuring in the area.

Two months later 30th June 1992, Regional Consortium signed another agreement. On Chelm Region's initiative (Chelm District had already been running co-operation projects with Wolyn District and started economic contacts with Belorussian partners) Jerzy Drygalski Chairman of the Co-ordination Committee of the Regional Consortium (enlarged with the Tarnobrzeg District) signed in Kovel an agreement with Wolyn District. The Ukrainian side was represented by the president's representative Wlodzimierz Blazenczuk.
