Belarus' Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Andrei Dapkiunas laid out the idea of the strategy and the areas of its possible application to the members of the council.

Currently the tourism industry relies on the state program “Hospitable Belarus” designed to run in 2016-2020.

Engaging the potential and pooling the resources and capacities of a wide range of partners (ministries and departments, local authorities, private business, international partners and investors) around Belarus' obvious tourist advantages and attractions will increase the country's visibility in the world and will contribute to the development of small and medium-sized businesses, economic, transport and social infrastructure, jobs, and investment.
