“This year the total area of ​​Belarusian expositions abroad expanded by 25%, and the number of participants in these events increased as well. In 2017, a total of 206 Belarusian organizations and enterprises participated in exhibitions abroad. The majority of them represented the manufacturing and food sectors. The largest number of expositions was presented by the Industry Ministry, the Education Ministry, Belgospishcheprom Concern and the Agriculture and Food Ministry.
