By 2030, the share of small and medium-sized businesses should be doubled in Belarus.
Business support measures were discussed in the Grodno region on April 5. Representatives of the Ministries of Economy, Labor and Social Protection, as well as Architecture and Construction met with the heads of districts and local businessmen to discuss the creation of jobs, wage growth and investment.
Aleksandr Kalinovsky, Deputy Director of the Entrepreneurship Department of the Ministry of Economy of Belarus:
We believe that it is necessary to improve the forms and methods of activities as well as financial support.
Small businesses in Belarus need organizational, informational and advisory support.
But government support should be directed in the first place to the development of innovative technologies and help to successful projects.
After the visits to Belarus' regions, the working groups of the three ministries will offer the Belarus government a detailed strategy for regional development.
