Transcontinental connection highway Moscow-Frankfurt will pass through BelarusThe first deputy head of the Operations and Analysis Center under the President of Belarus (OAC) Vladimir Riabovol said that a big transcontinental communication line Moscow-Minsk-Frankfurt would go via Belarus.

A great project involving foreign direct investment is organized by "Belarusian Cloud Technologies" (beCloud).

The realization of the project will give opportunities to use transit opportunities of Belarus more efficiently. It will allow to earn more money on information services and to contribute the in development of appropriate infrastructure.

The appearance of a transit communication line will be felt by each internet user. "It is all interconnected and interdependent.

Belarus plans to enter top 30 countries with the most developed ICT by 2015.
