Immediate plans are to do everything so that people can spend the whole day in the use of the phone with our apps.

One development lasts several years while some - only three days. However, such professional records are the exception rather than the rule. After all, one IT product is the result of work of the whole team: developers, managers, producers, designers and testers.

Dmitry Karnei, director of a company developing mobile apps:
Export accounts for 100% of our revenue. Most of our users are citizens of the USA, Japan, of course, the European Union and Russia.

Director of the Park noticed that as before, the companies are export-oriented. Foreign markets get 90% of the total amount of products.

Valery Tsepkalo, Director of Administration of the High Technologies Park:
In Belarus, software exports per capita have exceeded the corresponding figure in the United States and India. And, in general, in 2014, it is clear that the dynamism has continued to improve.

The park has plans for 2015. For example, a business incubator. It will be launched before the end of April. Moreover, according to the Park Administration, it must become the biggest post-Soviet space.

New opportunities were also given by a decree signed by the head of state in November 2014.

The High-Tech Park is convinced that these new possibilities are the next step to increase the supply of goods and services to foreign markets and expand the geography of exports.
