What is HTP?

During the last years the ICT sector in Belarus receives strong government support and is one of the top-priority economic sectors to develop. Thus, by the special Law issued in 2005, Belarus Hi-Tech Park was established with the main goal to support software industry. HTP Belarus provides special business environment for IT business with incentives unprecedented for European countries.

HTP resident-companies can work and provide services in the field of information system analysis, designing and software development (IT consulting, audit, national information networks maintenance, database development and corporate information systems implementation and support).

First residents were registered in 2006. Currently, 192 companies are registered as HTP residents. More than a half of them are foreign companies and joint ventures. By the origin of investments attracted to the sphere of new and high technologies:

41% of HTP residents were set up by Belarusian investors,
24% of HTP residents are joint ventures
