Mapbox CEO: I like visa-free Belarus and expect even more positive changes

MapBox CEO Eric Gundersen, who has recently bought the Belarusian company MapData, has spoken about his impressions about Belarus.

"This is a cool country. There are excellent engineers and tech specialists here.

It's great that now you can get to without a visa. For now it's only five days, but I heard that they are going to extend the period to a month, right? This is very necessary.

Previously, it was hard to bring foreign investors, specialists, and now only a plane ticket is needed if you're coming to Belarus.

I also heard about the decree on High-Tech Park - I was told that there would be a lot of very modern and interesting things there. I am sure that all this will have a positive effect on Belarus."
