Belarus - EU: Trade and Perspectives of Integration

This study analyzes the current state of trade between Belarus and the European Union, considering the restrictive measures against Belarus and its growing dependence on Russia. In the context of Belarus’ limited access to European markets, economic integration with Russia does not contribute to the development of the Belarusian economy. However, integration with the EU could provide new opportunities for growth based on modern standards and innovation. The authors of this study assess the prospects and benefits of such an integration and explore possible ways to ease sanctions to promote the development of trade relations between Belarus and the EU.
The study was prepared within the project BEROC Research Lab.
