Investment image of Belarus and its presence in international rankings

International rankings are the second important source after mass media which investors use to learn about business climate in a foreign country. Today Belarus is represented only in the ratings with free participation. Belarus remains the only country in Europe absent in the number of famous ratings with fee-based participation. For example, the country is not featured in The Global Competitiveness Report, World Competitiveness Ranking, Global Entrepreneurship Monitor and many others. The absence of the country in the most popular rankings strengthens negative views of investors about it.
