International trade with Belarus

Belarus’ economy is based on exports and the country has trade links with more than 170 countries, which helped generated international trade worth US $50 billion in 2009.

Belarus is the world’s third largest producer of potash, a raw material used in many fertilizers and chemical products. Almost half of exports go to Russia, mostly minerals, chemical products, machinery and food, while more than a third go to EU states in the form of petrochemicals, fertilizers, and textiles. After Russia, Belarus’ leading trade nations are the Netherlands, Germany and Ukraine.

The main imports to Belarus are energy commodities from Russia, mainly oil and gas, and raw materials.
