After the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, more than 30 years have passed. In the affected areas of Belarus, which areas are located near the site of a nuclear tragedy, life comes back. In any case, the largest of them - the Gomel region - has become very attractive for local and international investors.
Sixty percent of the region’s products — including meat, dairy, and handicraft goods — are exported to other regions and neighboring countries. The volume of direct investments that could attract in the region from 2011 to 2017 amounted to more than 17.7 billion dollars. This is 15.6 percent of all investments in the country.
