Representatives of Belarus and Germany discussed today prospects of trade, economic, and investment cooperation at the Belarus-Germany non-governmental council for business cooperation. According to experts, the economic relations between the two countries have been advancing for the recent years. In 2018 alone, the bilateral trade turnover grew by 16%. The trade balance remains negative for Belarus. Yet, the parity may change due to the increase of the Belarusian innovation production to the countries of the European Union.
