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. For the time being, advisory activities in Belarus have been suspended.
