ECOPRESS is an information and marketing agency based in Minsk, the capital city of Belarus. It specializes in the collection and distribution of trade, financial and general economic information from Belarus.
The association is currently involved in the Intellectual
Labor Electronic Exchange Project (ILEE ) with a Belarusian organization
called the Association of Disabled in Wheelchairs.
The target group implies unemployed youth and physically handicapped.
The aim of the project is to solve the problem of unemployment and job placement of physically handicapped people by means of modern
information technologies (internet). At the present moment ECOPRESS is
creating a special database and information section designed to facilitate
registration via the internet. One of the long-term targets is to advance the project on
a national scale, giving an opportunity to handicapped people to find
distance jobs or full-time employment.
