Belarus Potential of Becoming Europe's Silicon Valley By 2015 Reviewed

The Belarusian government has repeatedly announced its ambitious goal of converting Belarus into the European "Silicon Valley" by 2015. To reach it, the country's policy makers have already made some significant steps aimed to:

  • Re-train and upgrade the existing pool of specialists with science, technology, economics and math (STEM) skills to meet the future internal and external demand for ICT professionals
  • Align ICT educational programs with the real-life needs of the business and technology environments
  • Innovate and modernize ICT infrastructure
  • Attract more foreign investors by offering favorable taxation and pricing conditions
