Innovations inspire progress
Innovative goods primarily manufactured by small and medium-sized businesses will soon drive our economic growth
“Innovations are impossible without an enterprising spirit, so the Government is focused on developing innovative entrepreneurship, encouraging innovations which can adapt to our changing global economy more quickly and effectively,” emphasised the Minister.
Mr. Snopkov is convinced that the Government and the Economy Ministry must foster an environment conducive to entrepreneurial spirit and initiative. A significant step in this direction has been the introduction of new tools stimulating innovations by individuals and small business entities.
“At all times, the engines of progress have been driven by individuals, who offered new paths. Change is always faced with hostility (such is human nature) but we must follow this road, overcoming hardships, to ultimately achieve our goal,” stressed the Economy Minister.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is held in 140 countries around the world, including in Belarus, providing the opportunity for foreign and Belarusian partners to share experience. The week brings together business leaders, international experts, diplomats, representatives of financial institutions, business associations and authorities. The programme includes workshops, conferences, discussions and competitions. The key event of the week this year was the 4th International Entrepreneurship Forum.
