Belarus President proposes to establish holding company based on Tsnyanskie Ecological Products farm

30% of the grain has already been harvested, with the yield being two centners higher than in 2015. On July 29, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko was reported on the harvesting campaign in the Minsk region.

The head of state was shown promising agricultural machinery. One of these new products is the Borisov-made baler collecting straw and hay into neat bundles. It increases quality and reduces labor costs and losses. 20% of the vehicle's components are Belarusian. In the future, half of this vehicle will consist of Belarusian parts.

The head of state demanded unconditional implementation of instructions regarding the acquisition of farm balers. In the midst of the harvesting campaign, the President also instructed to increase the pace of harvesting.

Mikhail Rusyi, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Belarus:
To date, we have removed 30% of grain.

Alexander Lukashenko:
Exactly 30%?

Mikhail Rusyi:
30,7%.

Alexander Lukashenko:
Is there 30% or less? Please tell me the truth.

Mikhail Rusyi:
Yes, definitely. As much as 2.33 million tons has been harvested.  40,000 tons per day goes to grain elevators. This suggests that the pipeline has been set correctly, there is grain, there is bread. We are harvesting flax, 50% has been removed.

Alexander Lukashenko:
What about flax this year?

Mikhail Rusyi:
Flax is slightly better than last year. Weather is beneficial. We've already harvested 1,500 tons of seeds.

Alexander Lukashenko:
It's time to harvest 500,000 tons per day. So that we harvest one million in 2-2.5 days.

Mikhail Rusyi:
This is like in previous years. There was some rain that is interrupting work. Today and yesterday we harvested about 340 thousand. Therefore, we will reach 400 thousand, work is underway.

Alexander Lukashenko:
Given the increase in crop yield and harvest areas, what figures are you expecting this year?

Semyon Shapiro, Chairman of the Minsk City Executive Committee:
2 million.  Last year, southern areas were without fodder. What is the situation in the world? Ukraine has good grain and Russia has good grain too.

Alexander Lukashenko:
That is, we don't know where to sell grain?

Semyon Shapiro:
Each year some grain remains.

Alexander Lukashenko:
All right! If you did not have that inventory, what would you use as feed in the south of the Minsk region?

One of the President's stops during the trip was the farm Tsnyanskie Ecological Products. Assessing the results achieved by the company, Alexander Lukashenko stressed the crucial importance of having a competent leader who can properly organize the workflow.

The President in this regard required active use of the experience of such people when looking for training managerial personnel.

The head of state promised to continue supporting the development of farming in the country.

Tsnyanskie Ecological Products specializes in the cultivation of potatoes and cereals. It uses the most modern potato storage and processing technologies. In 2015, with the consent of the head of state, the farmer received the shares of another agricultural enterprise Kosino, with the relevant investment agreement concluded.

Alexander Lukashenko noted that all arrangements are being carried out, the economic state is stable and new jobs are being created. As an option for further development of the company, the President proposed the creation of a holding company on its basis.

Alexander Lukashenko, the President of the Republic of Belarus:
If there is a head, business will be running smoothly. I see here: he is like an investor. If he needs a storage, this is his concern. Your concern is production, so that you make products. Perfect!

Ivan Mager, director of Kosino:
I wish we had 100 such people in our country!

Alexander Lukashenko:
You think we don't have them? They are in place! I recently told him about this: give me a hundred revolutionaries and we will turn Belarus upside down! But they also need to be pushed like this. There are normal people and it is they who need to receive land. Give them this land and let them work!
