The development of bilateral relations with the CIS member states is one of the priorities of the Republic of Belarus foreign policy and foreign economic relations. These priorities are based on a number of historical, economic, political and cultural factors.
Belarus is interested in building equal and mutually beneficial relations with the CIS countries. Trade and economic cooperation are the most important spheres of this activity. In 2016 the turnover with the CIS countries (excluding Russia) made up 4.94 billion US dollars.
Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Moldova and Turkmenistan are our main trade partners accounting for more than 96 per cent of Belarusian export to CIS region (excluding Russia).
