The President of Belarus demands to increase the level of the development of agrotowns in Belarus. On November 12, the president visited the Mogilev region and held a meeting on the development of agrotowns in the Orsha and Shklov districts.
In particular, they discussed proposals for further improvement of the production sector of several agricultural towns of the Shklov district with the creation of complex integrated structure based on local enterprises.
However, at the very beginning of the meeting, Alexander Lukashenko stressed that this issue is much broader than the development of agriculture and territories in separate localities of the relevant districts.
Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus:
Some time ago, we started the modernization of our agriculture. We passed a certain way. We started from nothing actually, and got some experience. And what we have done during this time, has allowed us to save the village. If we hadn’t done this work, our village would be deserted. We have kept the village and as far as possible, we preserved the village. And in agrotowns we transformed the village. And at this point today we have to look in the future. That is the main task. What will be the village tomorrow? What do we need to start doing today to have the village of tomorrow? That's the goal.
