Shappo, M. (2014). Industrial policy: conceptual framework discussion paper dp2014r04, IPM Research Center.


Economic Belarusian authorities are increasingly talking about the need for structural reforms and the creation of fundamentally new economic model. In view of the high role of industry and large state-owned enterprises in the economy, a central place in this package of reforms should be taken by a new industrial policy. Currently, it is possible to carry a complex and opaque system of state support for enterprises, protectionist trade policies and preferential treatment for investment.
