Michael Morgulis: Everything is feasible if Belarus President is assisted by people who understand what he says

Let us ask the guest of our country from the United States about what people abroad know about Belarus.

What do people know about Belarus? Is there any new information you have learned about Belarus in America?

Michael Morgulis, Honorary Consul of the Republic of Belarus in the State of Florida (USA), director of the fund "Spiritual Diplomacy":
Previously, few knew something about Belarus, but in the last 7-8 years, we have found out much more. Then we began to publish a magazine that is in my briefcase. The first magazine in history with information in the English language. Many people from the political elite, business, banks, universities began to learn more about Belarus. I always lobby Belarus in Congress, we try to talk about Belarus in a more positive light. We tell Congress that Belarus is a country of positive and intelligent people, a country that has bright future in a number of areas, and it will demonstrate it. Suffice it to say about the Hi-Tech Park, a magnificent Belarusian achievement.

Will you tell US Congress about the All-Belarusian People's Assembly?

Michael Morgulis:
Sure. The fact is that I listened to the speech of the President, and I think that some future plans about reforms sounded fantastic but still I still think this is a breakthrough, no doubt about that. The President alone is not enough to implement all this. I think that Belarus still has enough trained people who could assist him in transformations in science, economy and life in general. So I think the plans voiced can be realized but only on condition that the President is assisted by people who understand what he says, and who think about the future of Belarus, not only about their personal future.
