This time, winners were named in 18 categories. The list of finalists included over 100 Belarusian companies. The companies were judged not only on the volume of exports but also on the export rate per employee, the amount of import component in the products, and the number of countries in the export network.
The awarding ceremony was held on June 4, 2014. The event was attended by Nikolai Samoseiko, Chairman of the Standing Committee for International Affairs of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus; Alexander Zaborovsky, First Deputy Head of the Council of Ministers Office, Head of the Belarus Prime Minister Secretariat; Alexander Guryanov, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belarus; national and local authorities, as well as representatives of diplomatic corps and cultural and sport’s elite.
The winners of the contest exported nearly $3.8 billion worth of goods and services in 2013. “Export sales are number 1 priority for the country today. Of course, it is important to produce and develop new products in the country, but the most important thing is to sell everything we produce – goods and services – for export,” noted Alexander Guryanov, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belarus.
Game Stream was also among The Best Exporter of 2011 and 2012 winners.
