Studying V4 and Georgia experience in the field of administrative reforms to facilitate economic development in Belarus

On February 11-12, BEROC, in collaboration with PMCG, hosted representatives of the governments of Belarus, Georgia, Poland, Hungary and Czech Republic, participants from Belarusian ministries, international organizations, NGOs, and the private sector to discuss the most suitable methods of facilitating economic development in Belarus. 

The two-day conference aimed to facilitate economic transformation and changes in Belarus, by sharing the experiences of successful economic reforms of Georgia and V4 countries. The event served as an appropriate platform for all stakeholders to discuss recent problems.  
Within the framework of the event, participants were analyzing the importance of promoting a transparent, less bureaucratic and international standard tax administration system, and how simple and transparent procedures for business can attract FDI. 
Experts from Georgia, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary reviewed the respective challenges each country faced before introducing tax and fiscal reforms, and the experts also outlined how they had managed to enhance a business-enabling environment through simplifying tax administration and introducing e-governance.
