Compared to other countries in the post-Soviet space, the Belarusian economy was not fully liberalised after 1991.

Important economic sectors in Belarus are characterised by strong planned economy elements and remain state-dominated. These include, above all, agriculture and industry. However, the country also has a successful IT sector, which represents a kind of liberal enclave.

In Belarus, the German Economic Team is mainly active in the areas of foreign trade, SME promotion and investment climate.
