Matyushevsky: Belarus is satisfied with progress in WTO accession talks

MINSK, 28 May (BelTA) – Belarus is satisfied with the progress in WTO accession talks, First Deputy Prime Minister Vasily Matyushevsky said to the Belarus 1 TV Channel, BelTA has learnt.

“We are satisfied with the course of these negotiations. In fact, in the nearest future we will harmonize our position with all major stakeholders, except for the United States,” Vasily Matyushevsky noted.

“The USA has a position of its own and we will discuss it additionally with them,” the first deputy prime minister noted.

Speaking about the development of the global digital economy, Vasily Matyushevsky noted that Belarus is set to become a regional digital hub. This task is meant for a mid-term perspective and it requires a number of challenges to be met, including organizational matters, infrastructure and education.

Apart from that, Vasily Matyushevky gave his take on the situation on Belarus’ financial market. In his view, the banking sector is the most developed sector of the country’s financial market now. The leasing sector as well as forex are gaining momentum, too. The insurance market falls behind a little bit; however, the government has elaborated a program to help it catch up with the other segments of the financial market.

“The market segment that requires our attention is stock market. Unfortunately, its growth pace is not good enough, however we cannot say that it is undeveloped. At least, the entire stock market infrastructure works rather efficiently,” he added.
