Unemployment in Belarus

Belarus Unemployment | Economic News & Forecasts

Belarus - Unemployment

Data suggests that activity was improving before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Industrial production picked up in January and exports grew at a double-digit pace in January–February, while the agricultural sector contracted at a softer pace. That said, despite disruption to the provision of high-frequency official data, it appears that momentum has slowed since the war’s onset. The economy should have been dented by the ruble hitting all-time lows. Moreover, a continued barrage of sanctions on both Belarus and Russia—Belarus’ main trading partner—by Western countries has taken a noticeable toll on Belarussian businesses and exports. Against this backdrop, the Belarusian Parliament is set to pass a number of measures to counteract the impact of these sanctions, while focus in trade relations have shifted, with talks to boost ties with Iran pushed forward in late April.
