Europe knows little about doing business conditions in Belarus

LONDON, 1 March (BelTA) – The European business community is poorly-informed about how attractive the doing business conditions in Belarus are, British businessman Simon Hume-Kendall presenting Environova Consulting Ltd. told BelTA.

He paid a visit to Minsk in February as part of the British delegation and met with the Belarusian authorities. Simon Hume-Kendall noted that certain mutually beneficial cooperation areas had been defined then. Among the priority areas the businessman named environmental protection, renewable energy resources and attraction of foreign investment to Belarus.

Simon Hume-Kendall stressed that he has been working with companies in Russia, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan more than 20 years and has never cooperated with Belarus before. Now he believes there are good prospects for mutually beneficial cooperation with Belarus.
