The Belarusian government has lifted the ban on export of locally-made face masks, and cotton wool, gauze and bandages with effect from May 9, 2020. The government had banned export of some medical products in March this year, and now with the lifting of the ban both single and multi-use face masks are eligible for export, if they are produced in Belarus.

Meanwhile, Belarusian textile firm Kamvol is in talks with companies in the US and Canada to branch out in to the north American markets. The company has this year added distributors in Armenia, Russia and Uzbekistan, according to Belarussian media outlet
