IT Belarus

In 1960s and 1970s, Belarus used to be an 'assembly shop' of the USSR: here they invented and made computers, satellites, electrical appliances. This is how programmers appeared; in the 90s, they went to work for international and the first local private companies—orders and customers passed to them by inheritance. In 2005, the High-Tech Park was established in the country—a special tax and legal regime that made life easier for Belarusian IT projects and attracted foreign corporations. In 2019, Belarusian IT industry grew 2.5x.
