As we now have fresh first-hand experience about
establishing a new company in Belarus, we can confidently say that the process
is quite easy and painless. The Belarusian authorities have done much to
improve investment conditions in recent years, including efforts to cut away
some of the red tape involved with starting businesses. Today, there is no
reason for foreign investors to feel that dealing with local bureaucracy would
be a negative factor affecting their investment decision.
The importance of Belarus for European business has grown in recent years as it is geographically positioned as an important waypoint between many European and CIS markets. Today, the country is especially interesting for foreign investors operating in logistics and IT. One example of possibilities in IT is the Great Stone investment park located near Minsk, where investors enjoy reduced taxes and increased ease of doing business. The park is a joint Belarusian-Chinese project and has already attracted tens of investors not only from China, but among others from Russia, Australia, the U.S, and Germany.
