The best city for doing business will be chosen in Belarus. Business should become one of the growth points in the next five years. The development of small and medium-sized businesses in small towns and villages is an important task for the Belarusian economy. The government is working on this together with specialized associations and unions. In 2019, the city of Lida became the finalist. Among the criteria are not only the number of business entities, but also assistance from local authorities. The higher the openness and the level of dialogue, the more favorable the business climate.
