On June 23, delegates of the fifth All-Belarusian National Assembly will continue the debate to discuss the development strategy of Belarus in the coming years.
On June 22, on the sidelines of the Assembly, some members and guests of the event shared their impressions about the large-scale event, which determines the country's future for 2016-2020.
Viacheslav Dragun, delegate of the fifth All-Belarusian People's Assembly, Deputy Minister of Trade of the Republic of Belarus:
The head of state has identified priorities for the development of not only sectors of the economy, but also the regions of the republic. He gave assessment of work of the executive authorities and government agencies. In the area of trade, in this case, tasks have been set to create the same conditions as for urban residents. So that one does not see much difference between regional trade and trade in large cities
Leonid Barabanov, delegate of the fifth All-Belarusian People's Assembly, Chairman of the Gomel regional association of trade unions:
The main topic is man and social problems. And also moral problems. And I am deeply convinced that the fulfillment of the planned economic targets will provide citizens with what they want.
Leonid Marinich, delegate of the fifth All-Belarusian Assembly, First Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Republic of Belarus:
All the promises in the field of agro-industrial complex are relevant today and, most importantly, achievable. This is the further intensification of agricultural production, increase in output, reduced costs and, most importantly, the production of competitive products. Today, the emphasis was placed by the head of state on the development and diversification of exports. This first of all applies to the agro-industrial complex.
Grigory Rapota, State Secretary of the Belarus-Russia Union State:
I am pleased with two things. First is the opening of the creative potential of people and the measures that will be taken for this purpose. This is support for small and medium-sized businesses and plans to increase their share in the GDP from the current 28% percent to more than 40%, which is very ambitious. And I think that if it becomes reality, it will contribute to the development of the national economy.
Anatoly Kapsky, delegate of the fifth All-Belarusian Assembly, Director General of BATE:
I was impressed by the speakers - the Russian ambassador, a member of the government of Israel, and the Ambassador of China. Firstly, they all spoke the language we all understood. And secondly, these performances were sensual and it was evident that they were well-prepared and sincere. I saw that these people are feeling the world's development and the development of Belarus. It is very important that our partners understand our purposes and support our expectations.
