Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Belarus’s economy grew 7.9 percent from a year earlier in the first nine months of the year, slowing from 9.1 percent in the January-August period and trailing the government’s 2011 target of 9 percent to 10 percent.
The expansion eased because of slower growth in capital investments, retail turnover, and personal incomes, the Economy Ministry said today on its website.
