Belarus got ahead of the United States and India on the export of computer services per capita
For the last year, the volume of export of computer services in Belarus amounted to about $ 60 per capita, while in India the figure was $ 41, in the United States – $ 36.
Belarus has a positive balance of computer services, and for the past five years, the country steadily increases this figure. For example, in 2009 the balance was equal to $ 121.5 million, in 2010 - $ 172.1 million, in 2011 - $ 227.6 million, in 2012 - $ 352.1 million and in 2013 - $ 480 million.
"It is important to understand that we reached these figures through the work of thousands of people and it's not just a separate one-off project. It is a systematic approach, the professionalism of Belarusian programmers, who are appreciated worldwide. It is a progressive movement of Belarus to the first places of the world rankings. In recent years our country «puts on weight» not only in terms of export of computer services, but also in other spheres of the IT-sector. So, there are enough grounds to believe that in 2015 Belarus would enter the top thirty countries with a high level of development of information and communication technologies "- said the first Deputy Minister of Communications and Information Dzmitry Shedko.
The High-Tech Park is the largest provider of computer services in Belarus. In 2013 the volume of its export totaled $ 446.7 million, what means more than 80% of the overall rate in the country. In the first half of 2014 HTP exported software and services amounting to 246.1 million dollars.
