MINSK, 14 February (BelTA) – The exports of Belarus' Hi-Tech Park resident companies hit the $1 billion mark in 2017, Deputy Director of the Hi-Tech Park Administration Alexander Martinkevich noted at a seminar headlined “Digital Economy: New Development Prospects” on 14 February, BelTA has learned.

Last year, the park's resident companies exported software development services worth over $1 billion (more than 80% of the total volume of exports of the IT companies registered in Belarus). “The Hi-Tech Park exports to the USA some 45% of the goods and services it makes. The USA is the major consumer of IT technologies. The second largest importer is the EU: Germany, the UK, Ireland, and Switzerland. These are the countries that are building Industry 4.0,” Alexander Martinkevich noted.

In his words, an educational center of the Hi-Tech Park will soon become operational in Gomel to prepare and retrain IT specialists.

Gomel is hosting the seminar “Digital Economy: New Development Prospects” on 14 February. The event brought together Gomel Oblast Governor Vladimir Dvornik, Gomel Mayor Piotr Kirichenko, representatives of the Hi-Tech Park, leading Gomel Oblast universities, companies, banks, and also businessmen. The seminar is meant to discuss the implementation of Ordinance No.8 on digital economy development, in particular, the introduction of digital financial instruments into the domestic economy.
