The Belarusian system of education has great potential resources on the world market. Therefore, nowadays it is crucial to increase the inflow of foreign students to Belarus.

This activity demands to present a positive image of the Republic of Belarus abroad, organize regional meetings of alumni and meetings with embassies of the Republic of Belarus, arrange educational exhibitions and international conferences; create a database of foreign alumni etc. For this reason the branch offices of the International Association in Morocco, Nigeria, Lebanon, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka were established.
