Lukashenka: Belarus to become leader in Eastern Europe


The state leader greeted the participants of the XXI International telecommunications, Informational and Bank technologies Forum TIBO-2014 and the XVIII International Exposition Mass Media in Belarus. The forum and the exposition will be opened in Minsk on April 22.

“Belarus has set an ambitious goal – to become the leader of ‘digital economy’ in Eastern Europe in the next few years,” Alyaksandr Lukashenka said.

"The basis of our success will be Belarusian scientists, engineers, programmers and entrepreneurs’ achievements presented at TIBO-2014,” BelaPAN quotes Lukashenka.  “TIBO-2014 and the exposition Mass Media in Belarus will be held together. You cannot imagine traditional mass media without the Internet nowadays. Evidently, promoting innovative technologies in the domestic mass media is the basis of their success.”
