Belarus set to increase food exports by at least 5% in 2023

MINSK, 21 December (BelTA) – The major task for Belarus in 2023 is to increase its food exports by at least 5%, Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Leonid Zayats said as he spoke at a joint sitting of the two chambers of the Belarusian parliament on 21 December, BelTA has learned.

Belarusian food exports are expected to exceed $8 billion by the end of 2022. “Next year the task is to increase the food exports by at least 5%. The price situation on foreign markets is favorable for Belarus; a huge growth in comparison with the same period last year. We need to add natural volumes of supply to provide foreign currency gain for our country,” said Leonid Zayats.

As BelTA reported earlier, in January-October 2022 the export of Belarusian food products increased by 26% year-on-year and amounted to $6.8 billion. This figure is already higher than the annual figure of 2021, which was $6.7 billion.
