MOSCOW, 2 December (BelTA) – The flow of investment coming into the Belarusian economy has recently shifted from the European Union to the Eurasian Economic Union, Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Petrishenko told the media during the Second Eurasian Congress in Moscow on 2 December. The event has been organized by the Eurasian Development Bank, BelTA has learned.
“In 2020-2021 investment in Belarus from the Eurasian Economic Union amounted to 45%, while that from the European Union - 30%. This means the balance has shifted towards the EAEU,” Igor Petrishenko said.
According to the vice premier, Russia has traditionally been the leader among the countries investing in Belarus. The share of Russia's net FDI has kept above 19.9% for the last 10 years. “We need to continue working like this,” he said.
