Vsevolod Yanchevsky about Belarus-Moldova IT cooperation

As many as 3,500 new working places were created in the High Tech Park in 2016. The prospective of cooperation and success of Belarus in the IT sector were discussed in the Park together with the Moldavian Premier on June 7, 2017.

Pavel Filip was the Minister of Information Technologies’ before 2016, so it is not surprising that he pays a lot of attention to the IT sector.

The Belarusian High Tech Park has things to offer. It is one of the largest IT clusters in Central and Eastern Europe today. As many as 173 companies are registered there. More than 90% of developed software is sold in 67 countries. Belarus is ahead of the USA, India, Russia, and the Philippines in exporting computer services per capita.

Vsevolod Yanchevsky, director of Belarus' High-Tech Park:
It is very important for small countries as Belarus and Moldova, but very prospective countries in the IT sector to understand how to act in the modern world where there is a range of topical issues. The first problem is the colossal speed of changes. Then there is huge competition. Thirdly, IT and high tech mean intellect. Intellect easily transfers through boundaries, easier than capital does. The idea of exchanging ideas and experience is very important.

Belarus And Moldova have many touch points today. Moldova is a reliable partner of Belarus. The commodity circulation summed up to 217 million dollars last year. It is planned to increase it twice. Belarusian trolleybuses, buses and tractors are assembled in Moldova. Belarusian food products, medication and wood products are known at the local market as well.
