Foreign investment: ICT sector as an example to follow

In 2018, only the ICT sector was stably attractive to investors, unlike public sector assets. Belarus’ overall investment prospects remained bleak. The government continues looking for solutions. A number of legal acts were issued last year to improve the investment climate and stimulate private sector growth. 

Trends

  • Stable investment interest in IT projects;
  • Positive dynamics in the markets of domestic and external portfolio investment;
  • A number of bills issued to improve the investment climate and develop small and medium businesses.
