Previous studies revealed that hidden urban sprawl takes place in agglomeration ring of Minsk with 1 million m2 dwellings recently built in the capital’s nearby villages. According to the latest news, Belarus authorities urged to stop development of Minsk agglomeration ring and to use more efficient the opportunities of urban development within the city. CASE Belarus’ research shows that current urban sprawl in Belarus is inefficient and creates high costs for the society.
«Economic Trends in Belarus» is a new analytical product launched by CASE Belarus. The overview of main trends in the Belarusian economy in the recent months is based on the data presented in a quarterly issue of the Macroeconomic Review of Belarus. Unlike the Review which represents the unique panorama of the Belarusian economy in over 100 graphs and tables, the Economic Trends in Belarus describe the changes in the economy and economic policy analytically.
Quarterly issues of the Macroeconomic Review of Belarus represent the unique panorama in over 100 graphs and tables of the key economic indicators covering all sectors of Belarusian economy: real sector, fiscal sector, monetary sector, and external sector. There are less words, more data. We expect the Macroeconomic Review to be helpful for a wide range of local and external stakeholders interested in Belarus economy in general: from academia and public authorities to representatives of international organisations.
