    JSC Belagroprombank held the International Specialized Conference “Agroecotourism: current situation and prospects” on April 15, 2011


    This conference is held annually to promote rural tourism, which is one of the most relevant trends in the tourism industry of the Republic of Belarus.

    The conference was attended by the representatives of government bodies, public associations, foreign embassies and farmsteads owners, as well as foreign experts who shared their experience in the rural tourism industry. The conference entailed the discussion of the most crucial issues of agroecotorourism development in Belarus and abroad.

    JSC Belagroprombank is successfully implementing the Program for agroecotourism support which envisages preferential lending to individuals and farm households to finance agroecotourism projects.

    Furthermore, training seminars are held regularly for farmsteads owners to help them acquire tourist service skills and become familiar with the experience of their peers in the rural tourism industry. The Program implemented by the bank encourages the creation of new workplaces in the rural area, growth of self-employment and self-realization of rural population.
