Dear participants of the "Best Exporter 2022" National Contest
On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Belarus I would like to extend greetings to the participants of the "Best Exporter 2022" National Contest and heartfelt congratulations to the winners.
In 2022, in the context of increased sanctions pressure, we managed to refocus our export flows on the markets of friendly countries. We achieved the record-breaking volume of foreign trade in goods and services with our key strategic partner, the Russian Federation. Exports to the People's Republic of China and the Middle East increased significantly.
The results achieved are indicative of the effective operation of Belarusian organizations aimed at expanding their presence in foreign markets. This has the utmost relevance to the participants of the "Best Exporter" Сontest, who proudly represent the "Made in Belarus" brand name on the international arena.
Today exporters are challenged to further improve the quality and competitiveness of Belarusian goods (works and services) as well as to set-up the production of new types of in-demand products.
I am confident that the potential of the contest participants, their creative approach to doing business and developing effective solutions will lay the foundation for the promotion of Belarusian exports. And the honorary title of the "Best Exporter of the Year" will encourage them to explore new frontiers.
I wish all the participants prosperity, fruitful work and every success in their professional activities.
Prime Minister of the Republic of Belarus
