Electronic trade receiving reform
Online purchases by Belarusians require regulation
The Minister of Trade, Valentin Chekanov, has noted that Belarusian online shopping from retailers based abroad needs regulation and that some areas of reform have already been outlined. Noting that domestic manufacturers are obliged to compete with foreign sellers online, he underlines that Belarusian light industry must produce goods not only affordable but of good quality. Demand exists and sales figures have been pleasing, with the Ministry of Trade intending to help encourage this direction.
