A week ago, Belarus performed at the annual EBRD business forum in London among the ten countries which had been granted with an opportunity to present themselves at the event. This is one of the signs that after sanctions had been lifted, our country became finally “noticeable” for investors. They are now ready to consider investments not only in detached companies, but generally in the sector too.
Nonetheless, foreign investors are looking for more examples like EPAM: in fact, they are interested in an equally successful experience. According to experts, the latest successful investment project implemented in Minsk was the Marriott hotel. Such examples could attract more foreign capital to the Republic of Belarus.
Moreover, authorities began to perceive the fact that in order to have more investments, the rules of the game should change. Therefore, Belarus was declared ready for some changes.
This episode of “Amplitude” was devoted to the following issues: which changes might occur in different areas of life and production sectors of Belarus; who needs operational investment; how to execute the maximum investment potential of the country; how the investment image of Belarus has changed; which factors impede the development of cooperation between Belarus and international financial institutions, which of these topics will be answered during conferences, and more.
Guests of the studio were Andrei Derekh, Chairman of the Board of Directors at “UNITER” Investment Company, Yuliya Baranskaya, Head of Marketing and Communications at the National Agency of Investment and Privatization, and Alexei Pikulik, Academic Director at BISS. The host of this meeting was – Alena Andreeva.
