Key Points

"Some Belarus-based companies work exclusively for the US market. "

"Hi-Tech Park was the birthplace of Viber. "

"Concerning software development, while implying a slightly higher price tag than hiring from India, choosing Belarus experts also means higher quality. "

"Having Belarus companies work culture based in the US and Europe and recently graduated professionals starting their work life ion those companies make them compliant the western marketplace profile. "

"Currently, Belarus children become acquainted with English from the 1st grade onwards. "

"One of the pillars of Outsourcing success is communication. "

"While having a skill set is somehow a common asset, being able to properly communicate is not. "
