Speaking about the development of IT in the country, the head of state mentioned the Hi-Tech Park and noted that "certain people fled abroad" not so long ago. "I don't judge them. The United Sates and others targeted our IT sector with an aim of slowing it down, imposed sanctions. Well, what choice did they [Belarusian IT specialists] have [in the conditions of sanctions]? Some left, some returned,” the president said. “Some traveled around the world and decided in favor of Belarus. Belarusians are a special breed: few of them can live abroad and be happy."

"Well, they left but the IT sector did not collapse. On the contrary, it presses forward. Those who left... Well, their place was taken by others," the Belarusian leader continued.
