For the first time in the history of HTP, the export of the High Technology Park exceeded $ 1 billion

For the first time since the existence of the High Technology Park, the export of its services amounted to more than a billion dollars. This is reported by BelTA. The exact figure for exports is 1 billion and 25 million dollars. Compared to 2016, the amount grew by 25%.

Director of the Park of High Technologies Vsevolod Yancevsky said: “A psychological bar is taken. In 2016, the fleet export totaled $ 820 million. In the past, in 2017, it grew by 25% and for the first time in history exceeded $ 1 billion. Simultaneously, the total production volume also exceeded $ 1 billion for the first time, with a growth of 20%. The key to success is one. At the beginning of last year there was a very clear signal from the president to the IT community – work freely and calmly, earn for yourself and for the country. The state will not interfere with you anywhere, but everywhere, where it can, will help. The word followed the case. The President instructed to develop a new decree. It included everything that the IT community offered. The decree was signed. The IT industry has very subtly felt this kind and truly sincere attitude of the state. And here is the result: for the first time in the history of HTP the export of the park exceeded $ 1 billion. This is a success not only for HTP, it is a success for the whole country, since this $ 1 billion has come to Belarus, to our economy. Today the new decree opens new opportunities, which means that God will give, and there will be new successes. ”

In 2017, 5160 jobs were created in the HTP, while in the resident companies at the end of the year there were 32.6 thousand people.
